For the past few seasons, players from the East have consistently dominated the league leaders in scoring.
While the East does boast more top end talent (Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Stamkos etc), it does seem as though the East is more offensive orientated, with defence coming second, whereas the West is more of a grind, with most teams playing a gritty defensive style.
Just a quick look at the goals for last season where as we know, each Conference only played within itself:
East: 2006 goals scored.
West: 1909 goals scored.
So my question is: Is it easier to score goals and rack up points in the East, than it is in the West?
As a fan of an East team, yes. I think it's slightly exaggerated by some people who think moving East would add ~20 points to players' point totals, but I do think it's easier to get points in the East than the West.
