I know everyone expects the Sens to be doing as well as they are at this point in the season. They should have been #1 way before now. So my question is does this bother you because technically we are tied for first. Or does it not bother you because the Flyers aren't really expected to be there anyway?
It bothers me because technically we are tied with them. We were #1 during the beginning of the season and the last time we held the spot was January 1st. I realize that everyone has the Sens picked to go all the way this year. So does that mean that us being there too doesn't mean crap?
If they are first and the Flyers are second (or switched around), that guarantees that they don't meet in the first round, and possibly the second.
