    This is getting very counter-intuitive.

    I bet you that either of New Jersey or Anaheim would *cream* either of Chicago or Columbus should they play them in a playoff series starting today.

    And despite the fact that Western teams dominate, blaming the strong teams in the East for the mediocrity of the rest in inter-conference play distorts the picture.

    Perhaps if you weighted a team’s record against each other team or division equally, you could mitigate the effect of an Eastern team having to play against such low-quality opposition for so many games.

    Although, I can’t really complain since the Sens can’t handle the Caps. They deserve to drop in the rankings. :)
