Exactly. I am hoping so bad the Panthers win this series because my buddy is a Devils fan and the last two weeks or so of the season all I heard about was how the Flyers were stupid to keep winning games because the Pens are going to sweep them and how NJ will get a free pass to the second round if they play the Panthers (there were those on this board who were making similar statements about how the Flyers should rest everyone the last couple games in hopes of getting the #6 seed IIRC). I sent him a text after the Flyers advanced talking about how unlucky the Flyers were and how lucky the Devils are for playing Florida. I got no response.

The bottom line is you play the hand you are dealt. Matchups will only get you so far in the playoffs. Sure they can help or hurt you, but in the end, you have to beat the best to be the best so there is no point in trying to "avoid" certain teams.
