It's all a good debate. Not to poke fun at the original post, but which Division in the East did the Preds miss this year? With the scheduling the way it is, that award is meaningless. It an adjustment, which won't happen as long as Bettman's in control, would change my stance.
I thought the head-to-head games ended that debate? Or would you like more of a sample size than just 88 games.
Seriously though, it's all pointless because you could say you have one more great team, but I would argue that your worst teams are worse than the Centrals.
In the end, all you can fall back on is average points (Pacific wins this) and head-to-head (Central wins this). I'm just saying it's foolish to single out the Central as so bad when the difference between the Central and the Pacific is minimal based on virtually every measure.
