as for the caps in the playoffs being the caps....well... if that is the template then they should sell every year. they are the caps. they have lost already
I think 3 points is a lot since all the teams above the Caps will keep playing too and some (notably the Canes) have games in hand.

As for playoff seeding, you raised the point that the Caps didn't have much success as a top-two seed and seemed to be suggesting that they might be better off as lower seed. I'm merely pointing out that they've trued that as well and had no success. I'm not saying they will never win. But this year's team, to me, doesn't look like a contender and there's something to be gained by not finishing in the 9th or 10th spot.
