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.
It's looking tough for sure.

NJD just lost Kovalchuk 2-4 weeks. TOR snapped the losing streak, but will they return to winning or collapse as usual?
