It's VERY simplistic and erroneous to say that it was because of the trades.

1) Last year's team overachieved for the Rangers. Massively.

2) Bob is the biggest reason for the Blue Jackets resurgence.

3) Both trades weren't completed until the trade deadline. The Rangers had a great record since then (albeit inflated some by a weak schedule).
