Chill... it is not an issue, it is an honest question on a forum.

Bear with me please; if the top seed has 105 points and the second seed has 104 seeds and the third seed has 103 points after 82 games played by each... there is no ties.

If the First seed had seven shootout wins because of a great goalie and a few snipers who excel at SOs and the 2nd and 3rd seeds have only SO win one each... will the SO wins be tossed providing the the 2nd and 3rd teams to flip over the team with 105 points.

In this case you have three top teams and all could have legitimate shots at the Cup...

For the sake of curiosity and education I seriously would like to know if the SO wins are disregarded across the board or merely for tie breaking as we assumed... In close races I would assume SOs could make a difference in who plays weaker teams and who has home ice... If anyone knows the answer, I would like to hear it.
