In my opinion, the playoffs are the most important event in the sport and it is going to depend on the outcome of the five teams.
But there is no way I would put any team ahead of the others in the conference.
That means that the playoff picture will be shaped by the teams from each of the conferences.
As I said, the Stanley Cup Playoffs are a two-way street.
It is not a one-way streets.
You have to take a look at the conference and the teams in order to understand the overall picture.
There are no easy answers.
That is why I believe there is a chance the two conference finals are going to be decided by the two teams from the other conference.
In this scenario, I believe that the Philadelphia Flyers would get the first-round bye to the Conference Finals.
They would face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round and would have to fight for a home-ice advantage in the second round.
In my eyes, the Flyers are the favorites.
But, as we saw in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, a third-round series is much more likely.
It would be a big surprise if Pittsburgh could not reach the Conference Final.
That could also change in Game 6, where the Penguins would have a chance to win it all.
But for now, the playoff race is still wide open and I think the Flyers have the edge.
