Free agency Day 5: Anybody notice a trend in the Leastern Conference?

┬áHere’s some very unofficial and inexact scorekeeping on how the Eastern teams have fared through four days of free agency. I know, a lot is going to happen before the lockout, er, I mean, the season.

Teams listed in order of 2011-12 finish:

1) Rangers (same, and that’s being optimistic and generous).
2) Boston (same, or worse if you consider the goalie leaving).
3) Florida (worse).
4) Pittsburgh (worse).
5) Philadelphia (worse).
6) New Jersey (much worse).
7) Washington (same, but worse in the forecast).
8) Ottawa (worse and woefully soft).
9) Buffalo (worse).
10) Tampa Bay (better).
11) Winnipeg (better).
12) Carolina (much better, because of pre-July 1 trade for Jordan Staal).
13) Toronto (same).
14) Islanders (worse).
15) Montreal (perhaps marginally better, mostly because of a new regime?)
