New York On The Ice: Contenders or Not?

If someone told me Bailey was a top five player, Lee was on his way to forty goals, Eberle, Ladd were scoring & Tavares was getting his numbers, plus Barzal was dominating, I would write they would be close to 15 over, well on their way to a playoff spot.

Instead they are the 2nd wildcard team, in a division where all eight teams could make the playoffs. So here's the big question.

Given goals/chances allowed even before deHaan's injury, just don't see it happening if was honestly asked on this day, something has to click on defense that has rarely happened this season.
