Razor With an Edge: What If We Big Danced?
What if the Stanley Cup Playoffs were a great big fat 16-team tournament with 1 vs 16 and reseeding after every round?

What if…

What if the Stanley Cup Playoffs were a great big fat 16-team tournament with 1 vs 16 and reseeding after every round? Would that be something you’d be interested in seeing come to fruition?

Damn right Razor, you say?

Well, for the purpose of hucking stuff at the ceiling tiles out of boredom to see what’ll stick, here is how that Tourney would look if it were to start TODAY.

(Wednesday, April 10):

1 Bruins vs 16 Stars
(Wowwwwwww!!!!!! Really?! Delicious theater)

2 Blues vs 15 Blue Jackets
(Go Blue!…er…uh)

3 Ducks vs 14 Red Wings
(After last year’s 7-game upset, nightmare for the Water Fowl)

4 Avalanche vs 13 Flyers
(Potential greatest series of Opening Round. Lay money that Patrick Roy fights Ray Emery)

5 Sharks vs 12 Rangers
(The Frequent Flyer Mile Series…and both teams would just pretend it was the Stanley Cup Final they always envisioned they’d play)

6 Penguins vs 11 Lightning
(Fleury got a sunburn on the back of his neck last spring. Crosby gets a nice base tan after a hellish winter of weather. NHL Productions documents his bronzing…)

7 Blackhawks vs 10 Wild
(The Central Division Final…wait, what?)

8 Canadiens vs 9 Kings
(The Rogie Vachon Cup)
