Yeah I think the # of teams in the east tends to lend itself to a little more playoff parity. I could totally see a 2/7 or 3/6 upset in the east but I would bet my house against either in the west. Even a 1/8 upset isn't beyond the realm of possibility in the east (although still unlikely). Nothing short of an ebola outbreak in the Winterhawks dressing room will stop the Tips from getting bounced, and quick. In fact I don't think I'd take anything less than 10-1 odds on the Tips winning one game.
