NHL’s broken playoff system still passing off mediocrity as parity

Once again, and by design rather than mere happenstance, one of the NHL’s top teams is guaranteed to be knocked out during the first round of the playoffs, while a lesser club is ensured of advancing. What kind of a league is it that perpetuates this manifest injustice?

Well, it’s the one that does whatever it can whenever it can to promote across-the-board mediocrity under the guise of parity and the one that finds ways to penalize the best organizations through cap restrictions, punitive expansion-draft-protection policies and a broken divisional playoff bracket system the league (and the NHLPA, its co-conspirator in this instance) has no current intention of fixing.
