And the Avalanche aren't? The Ducks and the Lanch are 1 and 2 in 5 on 5 for/against goals ratio. The Avs don't have the pedigree but they're doing everything necessary in my mind to get some respect. Hell, their goals per game is essentially identical (3.42 to 3.38).

Obviously they aren't going to finish with 70 wins and I don't think they even finish top 2 in the West, but seeing every single win rationalized and marginalized is extremely frustrating. It's less of a critique of the ducks than it is frustration at lack of credit being given to the Avs.
