I think for me, the east has had a generally weaker 1-8 lineup than the west and you look at recent "expansion" teams to have won a Cup, 3 of the 4 are from the east, as well as teams like Ottawa and Florida having made it and lost. Same with Carolina before they won. Western counterparts seem to have trouble doing that. Anaheim won and made it in 03 before losing but not much else can be said. San Jose is still trying to make their first final and they're supposed to be awesome every year. I know it has no bearing on anything real, I just think the east is easier to catch fire and make a run.
