Once again, comparing the results of two different seasons played under different circumstances/scenarios is completely useless and itself very illogical.

But basically, with the play-off system in place there's not really a clear metric showing what's better or not, other than the binary winning or not winning the Cup. We had the same amount of points in the regular season, and I think this is as close as you can come to "objectively" evaluating a season.

Anyway, with both seasons being so similar in the outcome, I think anyone claiming one was better than the other, and thinking that's anything but subjective, is a fool.
That's pretty much it, I was replying to snark with snark, and displaying how under any subjective measure (such as both being eliminated in the same round), one could use flawed logic to make flawed conclusions.

However, I never said they were better, and even said that directly:

edit: I mean this respectfully. I'm not even saying they were better, I'm just saying they were incredibly different, and comparing the results is useless given the difference in context.
MsWoof has hated the Richards/Carter trades on this board and the main board since the trades were made, I was just having some fun with that.
