    I inputed the 10 ten forwards, top 5 defenseman, and top 2 goalies in each team's system into an excell file and averaged each area. I did this only for each team in the Atlantic division. There results were as follows: (note, this is a bias system as each ranking was done by a different person).

    F D G Devils
    8.5 7 8
    7.5 6.5 4.5 6.25
    7 5.5 12.5 sum 5.8
    7 5 6.25 average 7.11111
    7 5 6.387036667 Overall
    7 29 sum
    7 5.8 average

    7.111111111 Average

    Analysis: The Devils no longer have the best system in the Atlantic, partially due to the graduation of Paul Martin, David Hale, Paul Martin, and Scott Clemmenson. However, their forward base remains the best of the division by a good margin.

    F D G Pens
    8 8 9
    7 7 6 6.8

    The Pens have earned themselves the highest rating in the Atlantic due to their depth on the blueline and in goal. Their forward ratings are pretty low probably because half their team were rookies last year up front.

    Trades and graduations have dropped the Isles to last overall in the Atlantic. Their forward lines are still 2nd best in the division, but between the pipes they really suffer. Defense is average.

    F D G Flyers
    8 7 7
    7.5 6.5 6 6.5

    The Flyers are top heavy, with some high level talent like Richards and Carter, but lack much on the lower end. The Flyers are decent in goal, but lack defense. Their obvious strength are their top end forwards, and decent goaltending.


    F D G Rags
    7.5 8.5 8 6.6
    7.5 7 6.5 7.1

    The Rags are perhaps the most well rounded of the Atlantic division, and boast the only truely deep blueline (though the Pens definately compete). The Rangers are the only organization lacking an 8+ forward.

    Defense:

    1. Rags 7.1
    2. Pens 6.8
    3. Isles 6.4
    4. Flyers 6.2
    5. Devils 5.8

    Goal:

    1. Pens 7.5
    2. Rags 7.25
    3. Flyers 6.5
