Ugh. Why bother arguing.
Come Christmas, you post your list of all the playoff teams. Then, come April, we'll review.
Look at the history of the league since the lockout, the standing change very little from October on let alone December on.
15% of teams out of it by this very date don't make it to the playoffs. I'm not stating anything other than the facts. You can tell by on ice play as well.
