You are simply out of your mind. I'd rather play any team in the league in the first round than the Pens right now. Finishing in 6th not only sets you up against a flawed SE division winner, but also puts you against the Bruins or Ottawa in round 2... a better proposition than playing Pens and Rangers in the first 2 rounds.

I don't advocate tanking because it sets you up to fail once you get there, but the Eastern 5 seed is looking like the same road to the Finals as the Eastern 8 seed.
