Early Impressions: Evaluate the Atlantic

After the first two months of the season, the Rangers managed a narrow Atlantic division lead. But in your honest opinions, who is the class of the division? I'd be interested in your takes on each of the atlantic teams; Who do you fear the most, and who, if anyone, has the most legitimate chance to go deep into the playoffs?

A few additional questions you might consider:

-Have the Islanders escaped their "offseason embarassments", and can they continue to improve?
-Can the Flyers rebound from their miserable start, or will they be looking to the future at the trading deadline?
-Even though the Devils squeaked their way out of offseason cap trouble, can they generate enough offense to defend their division title?
-How close are the young Penguins to crossing the threshold of being a competitive team, or have they done so already?
