And just because a team wins the cup doesn't mean they are the best team in the league for that season anyway. Injuries happen, goalies get hot, players get hot, players get traded etc.
Having a better record over 82 games, and winning a best of 7 pretty much proves you're better team that season. Maybe the lower seeded that has the better goal differential should win more close games.
