That may be, but let's look at their remaining schedule:

@ Boston - fighting for their playoff lives
vs. Carolina - always gives us fits
@ Washington - a team that is actually more potent without Capt. Caveman
@ Detroit - fighting for their playoff lives AND they're healthy. Not good.
vs. Philadelphia - in 6th but is only 3 points away from being out of the playoffs...tough matchup
vs. Toronto - may be the 2nd worst team in the league but are still capable of beating anyone
vs. Tampa Bay - fighting for their playoff lives
vs. Atlanta - still has an outside shot at the playoffs
vs. Washington - may be resting some guys by then
vs. Isles - final regular season game at Mellon - they definitely win this one
@ Atlanta - may be playing only for pride
@ Isles - ditto

Not exactly an easy schedule by any means. Now let's look at the Devils' remaining schedule:

@ Toronto
vs. St. Louis
vs. Columbus
vs. Rangers
@ Montreal
@ Philadelphia
vs. Boston
vs. Chicago
@ Carolina
@ Atlanta
@ Florida
vs. Isles
vs. Buffalo

Much easier schedule, IMO. I think the Devils will win the division, sorry.
