So ...the season has ended. OK.And there are 24 teams entering the .... 'postseason' in order to have a 16 team 'playoff'.And the reason for this quibble over the language is ... what exactly? Heard it may be that there are contract provisions such as bonuses for 'being in the playoffs', for both players, announcers, etc. that the league does not necessarily want to trigger. Ones related to trades and conditional draft picks, maybe also, but .. less so since we will have the draft ahead of the playoffs and teams have been asked to 'renegotiate' such provisions that could affect this years draft positions.This is so ... NHL.Will we have a new stat category 'regular season', 'playoffs' and now 'postseason'. Should at least be good for some future trivia questions.
#8 vs #9...Toronto vs Columbus!!!
I still say they should just take the number one team in each conference and have them play for the Cup.
