I agree too, but one HUGE factor the East has over the West, is the schedule all season was a JOKE comparing the two sides. Eastern teams never had to leave a time zone. and there longest road trips were 3 games, (atleast the Leafs were) compared to the Oilers 2 (5 game trips) and one 9 game trip. So teams from the East will not be as "tired" as the West, some would say.
