1 pointThank fuck they're actually re-seeding. This was about to be all kinds of stupid with a forced bracket, and with Bettman's track record seems exactly like something they'd do. Now they just need to ditch the forced divisional brackets for normal playoffs too.
1 pointWe're a forum of 20 shit heads. That's not a lot. Fact remains, lockout shortened has far more legitimacy than the current "We stopped playing hockey months ago, are jumping straight to the playoffs, oh, and we came back with 8 additional playoff teams, and we're just going to award cup as usual" For real. Say that out loud, and tell me that's not what a bush league would do. You can't. Because that's what a bush league would do.
