I'd much rather go in fifth and playing well than go in second with an untested goalie or one who is still in a funk. it would not make a difference who we played in the first round, if we play like we are currently, we are done.
Can't avoid everyone in first round. You cannot be serious about starting at home vs Isles vs possibly dropping to 5th and starting against Leafs at ACC.

That is what these two losses might mean, if we play .400 from now on and Leafs win 4 of 6.

The Isles have zero PO experience, and no toughness. They would be a much better 1st round opponent than Laffs. I'd be surprised if it took 6 games to beat them.
