I googled "Blue Jacket" and this came up.
The Leafs certainly have their faults, but at the end of the day, they currently sit 3rd in the east with a 14-8-1 record. The Blue Jackets on the other hand need to thank their lucky stars that they switched over to the eastern conference this year. Columbus' 8-12-3 record gives them 19 points. That puts them just four points out of a playoff spot in the east. In the west they'd be 13 points out.

Maybe LGD threads should all be titled after movies
Disclaimer: One thing I'd prefer not to do in this preview is discuss the fate of a certain former Leaf centreman, his merits or his flaws, with respect to the reader, he is a member of the Washington Capitals now, and he plays on a line with Jason Chimera and Joel Ward, and that is all that matters.
It must be hockey season, since the Washington Capitals are a bit of an on-ice disappointment. I projected them to be pretty high in the standings at the start of the season, but they're 16th in the league with 25 points, and I'd think part of that success is a bit of an illusion. I thought they'd be towards the top of the table in the Eastern Conference, but they're already five points back of first in the Metropolitan (or PatrickPlus) and 16th in the league, well-back of contender status.
Of course, I've also learned that when a team betrays your expectations, usually it's because your forecasting methods were off, not because there's something wrong with the team or players.
