    Wrong. The Wild would have had home ice advantage. Home ice is by points not seed.

    My mistake. You're partially right. Home ice for the Conference Finals and the Stanley Cup is based on points. Home Ice for the first two rounds are based by seed. So yes, the Wild could have had home ice for the Conference Finals had they not choked against the Blues (and presumably not choked against Nashville).

    Usually. But if a UND fan said it, he's right, even if he has to invoke the alternate facts rule. It's like a Trump card.

    The whole thing is stupid. The NHL needs to get a clue and go back to 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc. Write your congressman.

    Sure, but that's because of this stupid divisional system they put in that punishes good divisions and rewards bad ones.

    Ottawa may have won the series, but Boston did manage to take another delay of game penalty while going through the handshake line.

    It works because we contract to 26 teams. Goodbye FL, TB, ANA, NSH.

    Carolina is permitted to stay after being relocated to Hartford.

    Everybody in the media loves Nashville. I think they get a stay and we sub in Columbus.

    So before the playoffs began my pick was Chicago to win the Cup by beating Boston.
