I'm not sure an accurate measure would only be based on the last regular season.

Best example I can think of: in 1995, the 8th seeded Rangers beat that 1st seeded Nordiques. Should have been considered a major upset, but a lot of people were not surprised. Rangers were "the defending Cup champions who underachieved during the regular season" vs "a young team that is there for the first time."

Do you think it's worth bringing in the previous playoffs, or is that too much complication for a minor variable?
