I think the NHL should do the same if there's a tie between the 8 and 9 seed. If it's a tie that determines seeding, then it should just be a tiebreaker, because whether you're the 6 or 7 seed isn't much of a difference compared to coming in as the 8th seed versus being out.
well they definetly earned the title of al east champions. now the real season begins. i have a feeling they will face texas on sunday considering texas is at home and im sure that they are angry that they just got swept by the a's and lost the division in the process.
