Perhaps. Boston is not as good this year than last year. They have almost no scoring depth beyond their top-2 lines and they lost some leadership too. They're still the favourites to win the division, but I'm not sold they're better. Ottawa has better depth, and when injuries inevitably strike, they'll be able to better weather the storm.

Also, I heard that argument last year, and Boston didn't finish 1st, despite being one of the healthier teams in the league. I applaud the effort though.
