Unless you added something very significant in March, it's unlikely that the team will suddenly get good in the playoffs after half a year of mediocrity. Granted if Lindberg gets called up and magically turns into the next Wayne Gretzky, our odds of winning the Cup from the 8 seed are pretty good, but why would the team suddenly get better in March?

It's also much more difficult to win as an 8 seed because you don't get any easy rounds early on, so you are much more tired by the time you reach the ECF than a team that easily swept through two low seeds to get to there.
