You mean the year the Flyers made the finals? Yeah, that year, the Flyers and Canadiens were 18th and 19th in the league, both behind Calgary, Anaheim, and St.Louis in overall standings, and none of those 3 teams made the playoffs in the West.
If there's not much complaining about it, that's because it was the Flyers and Canadiens. Two important franchises that the league and most fans would love to have in the playoffs even if they were the worst two teams in the league. They happened to be the two teams that made the conference finals in the East that year, but that's not the point.
