This is a good post by Timo Seppa of Hockey Prospectus about the New Jersey Devils season so far. It touches on the same issues discussed at length here. I think the only major factor missing is just a horrible run of luck (it's touched on by the scoring part). But it's a recommended read. (Disclosure: I did contribute to the 2010-11 Hockey Prospectus with Seppa on the Devils chapter.) Note to Burnside and other outside journalists writing about the 10-11 Devils: this is how you do it.
