It's time for a 6th, 7th or 8th seed to win it all
I believe the stat for this is that the lowest seed ever to win the cup was 5th. And it is usually 1,2,3 that always win. This year the New York Giants became the team with the worst regular season record ever to win the superbowl. It's time for a similar thing to happen in the NHL.
As of now here are the most probable 6,7,8 seeds
8- Capitals/Sabres (still to be decided)
7/8 - Phoenix, SanJose Dallas Colorado (still to be decided)
Thoughts? and do you see one of these teams listed winning it all this year?
Sorry - has never happened under the current playoff format (1994) and I don't see it happening any time soon! Cream always rises to the top in the NHL.
It'll happen eventually. Calgary almost (did? depending how you feel about the blown call in game 6) won the cup in 2004 as a 6th seed. Edmonton was in a coin flip with Carolina in 2006 as an 8th seed.
No thanks. If the Rangers get knocked out, I wouldn't care, unless the Devils win.
