Yes, I said of the playoff teams. I'm not saying it's actually one way or the other, just pointing out their record can be good or bad depending on how you look at it. It needs way more study.
It reminds me of the '94 Canucks that went to the Cup finals actually. We were supposedly big underdogs against Calgary, Dallas, and Toronto, finishing 13 points or so behind each of them.
But in reality, we had something like one less win than each of them, because we'd had almost zero ties all year long. As it turns out, we were quite closely matched with each of them, and managed to beat them all. It wasn't until we got to the Finals where we met a team that was significantly better.
