BrooklynBoy89 Posted March 6, 2019 Share Posted March 6, 2019 The time has come again, another year where it looks like this terrible Playoff Format is going to force one of the top 3 teams in the East to be ousted in the 1st round because of this ridiculous format. It used to be the Metro.. Now its the Atlantic. The Bolts are obviously going to finish as the top team in the league.. The Bruins and Leafs are currently the 3rd and 4th best teams in THE LEAGUE! This division, if things stay as is, would have 3 of the top 4 teams in the league battling it out in the first 2 rounds of the playoffs. It is such a shame that the NHL has made this move, causing top teams to be eliminated YEAR AFTER YEAR. When will this stop? What will it take for them to realize the best teams shouldn't be playing each other in the first or even second round? As the current East stands, the Bruins and Leafs would meet in the first round, meaning the current 3/4th place teams in the whole league would battle in a round that should never include two top 5 teams in the league facing off. It's time to go back to the old way of Playoffs. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
