So your argument for continuing this conversation is: it's irrelevant?

How do you think the Rangers stack up against next years' West champions, by the way?

The Kings and Rangers will both end up with the same amount of games played.

Kings go 7-1 from here on out to win the cup in 18 games while the Rangers get swept and end up with 18 games played as well.

This doesn't surprise me. The Canes played all 14 possible games before the 2009 ECF when they got swept by the Pens.

If it takes us 28 games, then let it be written, let it be done.

Colorado played 21 games in 3 rounds during 2001-02 but that brings back nightmares.

Can't be. Couldn't have possibly happened 38 times.

This will only be the 44th season there's been more than 2 rounds.

I think if they sign Zach Parise they will be alright.

anyone know if any team had won the cup playing every single game possible with the previous playoff formats...ie best of 5 for divisional semis.

Even so, in 44 seasons you're telling me there's been 38 semi-finalists that played max games? That's about half out of 70 some-odd series.

I think he means in terms of games. 0-38, which wouldn't make sense either considering its 4 games to win 38/4 = 9.5. 9.5 series? Meh w.e. somebody will explain it.

It's in terms of series wins. I saw it on Twitter from a beat writer this morning.

Even if the first couple of rounds were different (I'm not familiar with the layout, was it a best of 5 before?), this is probably an all-time stat depending on maximum games available. 0-38 pertains to the actual Round 3 series lost, methinks.

No, it makes sense. There's 4 finalists every year, so out of the 176 teams to get to the third round, 38 have needed 7 games in both prior series.

Well I'm no historian, but 3 rounds have existed only for the last 44 years....so this dude is saying out of a maximum of 88 third round series in the history of the NHL there have been 38 out of 176 teams who made it that far that played 14 games to get there?

I'm calling BS on this one.

Oh of course from a Devils twitter.

No team has ever won the 3rd round after playing max games in the first two, that's a well known fact, but I'm not buying 38 losses.

Brenden Gibbins ‏ @BGibbinsXFMnews
History not on NY Rangers side...teams that have played back to back game 7's in the first two rounds are 0-38 in round 3.

Bunch of sources saying this. Idk if it's true, but idk why they would make it up.

Because journalists don't do research these days they copy and paste?

Wonder how 38 teams made it to round 3 going 14 games when there have only been 23 game 7s total in round 2 since it went to 4 7 game series format?

Probably a joke about the Devils jersey numbering policy...
