A subjective ranking can be neither "absolutely, positively, utterly false" nor "absolutely, postitively" true. Objectively, 50% of the central's playoff teams advanced, 66.67% of the pacific's did ... including advancing against the President's Trophy winner and a Central Div team.
You could also argue two of our teams were pitted against each other. That could be looked in a positive and negative connotation inthe one team was guaranteed to move on or one team is guaranteed to go home.

Also we may have played 6 games against Columbus but we also played 18 games against STL, CHI, And DET. One can argue is much more difficult than playing 18 games against LAK, DAL and SJS...
