In the last game of 2010 i might have been ok with Brodeur letting a few pucks in to face Buffalo instead of Philadelphia
Actually, I believe we would have faced Boston instead, and we matched up ok against them that season. Buffalo was the opponent for the last game, and they didn't want to see Boston, who they ended up losing to. But they matched up well against the Flyers.
Call me crazy, but I can see this team winning the division if the Rangers start to deflate (which isn't guaranteed, obviously).
Regardless of if this is realistic or not, this is the mentality the players have to maintain. From what I've seen of the character so far this year, I don't think they have a doubt about potentially being Division Champs.
