At the beginning of the playoffs I am willing to bet that you had no idea that LA was going to win the cup. At the start of the playoffs, you would have rather been the #1 seed. The playoffs are a freaking crapshoot! LA could have conceivable not even made the playoffs!
At least we give ourselves the best shot of winning (yes, the #1 seed has the best odds).
And LA has been the most dominant playoff team since the Oilers, give them some credit. Some LA fans are saying that we were their best opponant. I think we were still the second best team in the league and we can get better.
What is your point? Even after the first 3 rounds I still bet all my money on the Devils to win the Cup, so I'm not sitting here claiming how when back when I was one of the few that predicted them to win. I don't know what fans are saying that considering they have those diving pool signs at every game and had no respect for Canucks at all. And since officially the Yotes lasted longer, I'd say they were ones that at least tried to cause some adversity.
As for being a no.1 seed - it goes both ways... yes it gives you the best chance to win and at the same time makes you look like the absolute worst when you piss away the chance and lose. Which is exactly that this team did.
