I bet you're right.

And I know it's really primarily a business and parity is good for business.

But you just have to have to think it's fundamentally wrong for common sense to outweigh parity concerns. You know, taken to its logical extreme, you could just award every team 2 points for every game no matter what the result, and then you'd get infinite parity. But it wouldn't make any sense to anyone. The current state of affairs is more like this completely ridiculous hypothetical one I just outlined than it is like one that actually makes any sense.

Bold prediction. Top 3 seeds in the east are all upset.

He had a few times where he looked like he was pretty fast, amazingly. I'm hoping him and Ward show up for their contracts now.

Hammer played well. Wideman still makes me nervous, e.g. today's slow-motion disaster at point on PP, when he fell down and fanned on puck from prone position.

Speaking of slow-motion disasters, how many shorthanded breakaways did we give up today? I think team is still trying to figure out how PP will work with Ovie at half-boards/high slot. #8 had some bad giveaways on the PP.

Holtby played great.

I was kind of surprised 21 called his own number on the 2-on-1 with Ovie, and then not-all-that surprised when he rifled the shot a mile wide.

It does seem like the Rags would have been better first-round match-up for us, but I have given up trying to figure out match-ups. I thought we were sitting pretty last year when we drew Tampa Bay in 2nd Round.

I am guessing it will take me about 3 minutes of Game 1 for me to be thoroughly sick of Nose Face Killah and Lucic.

Well, the Rags probably have the softest defense in the playoffs outside of the Caps.
