Well, we can't really say that. If they had Vanek they wouldn't have had the same team that came in last. Mind you one could argue if the Leafs didn't have Kessel they'd have been better than 2nd. last.

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
