The NHL is loaded with parity. Is it good? Overall I would say yes. Knowing 'your team' can become competitive again in a short time frame is good. But … so much parity that the regular season is rendered meaningless is not that good in my opinion.

The league had only 2 50 goal scorers. But … if your measure as elite a player that scores over 30 (35?) and / or 70 points. Well, there were 45 players that scored 30 goals or more (25 with 35 plus). All but 6 teams (MIN, NJD, LAK, ANA, ARI) had one of those guys (Ottawa traded theirs, but … it counts). One of those teams is still playing (NYI). 55 players had 70 points. There is a lot of 'elite' talent right now, and the spread between the 'very top players' and the '... routine elite' just isn't as huge as it may have once been.
