Not even close IMO.

They might have a winning record, but come the playoffs they're going to show their weakness. I bet some non-playoff teams would beat them in a playoff format.

Their past success (with Carbo and with Therrien last year) was due to their speed, their work ethic, the chemistry, and overperforming players. This year they have no control of the puck, speed means nothing if you can't hold onto the puck. And there aren't any overperforming players, if anything, almost all of the players (except maybe Eller and Galchenyuk) have regressed since last year.
