Toughest Division in the League

Before the season started, I read a lot about how the Northwest would be the toughest division in the NHL. In this article, Craig MacTavish says:

"We are in the toughest division in the NHL. Look at the stats from the last season. "

Yes, Craig, look at the stats from last season. The Northeast had more points, more wins, fewer losses, and a betyter GF/GA differential than the Northwest. The Northeast had four playoff teams to the Northwest's three. I will concede the Northwest performed better in the postseason, with the Flames reaching the Cup final.

How about this season, then? It's still too early to tell, but that won't stop me from telling. It's still the Northeast by a long margin.
