Well, considering that PIT is in, and we have the second best team on paper in the division, their competition is NYR, CAR, WAS, CBJ, and NYI.

Every team in the division has playoff potential other than NJD. They'd have to overcome a lot to be in the playoffs. Every game within the division is a game against a team that is realistically better than them.

They play 31 inter-division games. (5 against 3 teams and 4 against 4 teams.) That's 38% of their season.
