"Miles apart" isn't an appropriate description. Just look at their best D-Man, Bouwmeester - whose played better this year, him or Visnovsky?

A 6 games swing, or switch our goalie situations and we are statistically going to be really close.

Edit - a little math. McElhinney's GAA is a full goal higher than Kippers. Multiply that by 40 and they'd be at -42 right now.
and...if Hemsky didn't miss 3/4 of the season... if Horcoff was having a 70 point year... if Souray was healthy and playing like a multi-million dollar stud Dman again... if Pisani, Moreau, Cogliano, O'Sullivan, Nilsson were all on pace for 20 goal seasons... if Gilbert & Grebeshkov were playing like they did a couple years ago... if Penner's second half was like his first half... if our back up goalers were actually playing like competent goalers...

...we'd be playing for the cup in June.
