If they can't get into the 6th or higher ceed or win the one-game play-in, I don't see them as being robbed of something they earned.
A hockey game isn't a week long Cricket with a final score of 250 to 175! It's just 60 minutes. And so the best team doesn't win 100% of the time against a weaker team. However, over a 7 game series, the best one should come on top.
Like I said before, a single game playoff will eventually end in disaster. It's playing with fire.
