canucks still can have home ice for three rounds if we win and st.louis loses once they play back to back also the presidents trophy didn't help us in the finals because it had no effect the canucks would of had home ice without it
It sure did help us-- the fact it gave us home ice advantage the whole season (just not in game 7 in SCF). I think it's important to win the first in the west just in case St. Louis does make it out pass 2nd round. Their home ice record is way better than ours but our away record is way better than theirs. I like our chances if we get home ice against them.
As for pres trophy, if we make it in the SCF and it's against Rangers, our records are so similar that I don't think it would matter who gets home-ice advantage.
