Let's make some big leaps of faith and assume Dallas wins the 8th seed going into the post season. Who would you want to be in that #1 slot for Round One? Here's why I ask: I think most of us would prefer to face San Jose over Detroit, though the Stars have silenced some of those Joe Louis demons this season. So, since that requires the Sharks to overtake the Red Wings in the standings...a Dallas win this afternoon would actual hurt that goal.
It's just something to ponder, but not seriously...because if Dallas doesn't make the playoffs it doesn't matter who's in the first seed, does it?
