I don't really have an opinion yet, but if all of those five teams are ahead of the Isles, also in the current format they wouldn't have a chance to get into the playoffs. So honestly, I don't see the big deal in this regard. As I'm from Europe I haven't followed the NHL as long as most others here, but as far as I know under the old system it was very rare (did it happen at all?) that all five teams of a division made it into the playoffs. At some point you have to be better than other teams, it's the prerequisite for making the playoffs.
