Early critique of the rankings? Hopefully we won't have a lot of: "I can't believe ____ is seeded _____ !"

The seedings are polling results for playoff match-up decision making. Nothing more with regards to the playoffs. So no need to complain. Even if the seedings were exactly how one oneself think they should be, it doesn't matter to the playoff match-ups because: 1) The regular season and the playoffs are two different animals, as the history of hockey has shown; and 2) Teams are matched up across divisions for postseason play. Some divisions have four great teams, others have two; seedings are only significant to the playoffs as a procedural matter, though it's a snapshot of opinion regarding teams relative to three others within the same division.
