Anyone want to do another draft? I know I'll be more into it than I was last year

Who the fuck thought this playoff seeding format was a good idea? Does anyone actually know how it fucking works? What the fuck NHL?

what do you mean? they did that to encourage rivalry or something, personally I think it's alright.
Or did something changed but it's been that way for a couple years now unless you talk about something else.

Encourage rivalry, or have top teams knock each other out sooner and give shitty divisions better chances to win games? It's fucking stupid. I hated it when they announced it and still hate it now

Current playoff format sucks but not for the reason Marko is angry at.

Marko keep in mind under a 1-8 structure you'd be playing... the Pittsburgh Penguins in round 1.

Under a true 1-16 structure with no conferences (which I prefer) you'd be playing... the Pittsburgh Penguins in round 1.

Which is worse, Boston/Tampa or Pittsburgh in round 1? Both sound like you're underdogs.

There's no gimmes in the playoffs. Unless you're a division winner which the Leafs weren't. Finishing 3rd in your Division sounds about right for a hard first round matchup.

I don't hate who we're playing, I hate that it's not giving a fair shot to the better teams. It should be 1-8, etc, and we should be playing the Pens, whether I like it or not. This divisional format is ridiculous. Why is Boston at 112 pts, second in the conference, playing Toronto, at #4? They should be playing Columbus, who is #7. Instead, Washington plays Columbus, and Pittsburgh, at #5 all of a sudden gets the advantage of playing #6 Philly? Finishing 3rd in your div and 4th in the conference should still be rewarded with home ice advantage, not Pittsburgh at #5. And if it's supposed to be more dependent on your division, why are both WC from the same division? Either follow-up with a strictly divisional format or be a normal format. Shouldn't be trying to have it both ways.

The work in the season should be rewarded in playoff seeding. I enjoy the east-west aspect, but a league-wide 1-16, like you mentioned, would be awesome too - as long as divisions and division winners are removed from the equation.

I don't know why I'm so worked up by it, but fuck it's a silly system.
