    President Tropfy

    I hope I never see the Bruins win another President Trophy again. In fact I hope they finish in the middle of the pack and go into the playoffs on the road. Frankly busting your rear end to finish first just to say your the best team in the NHL means nothing.  I think I can count on one hand that a team that finished first went on to win the cup.


    Like they say just make it to the big dance and then anything goes.

    But when you say, "I think I can count on one hand that a team that finished first went on to win the cup." You make it sound like it's a rare thing... AND IT JUST HAPPENED!!!

    I disagree.  I like when they win games.  Unless we're talking about lottery position, I don't hope they lose.

    Also, correlation doesn't imply causation.  They won that trophy but didn't win the Cup, but you can't say they didn't win the Cup because they won that trophy.

    Well, the last 15 years would be the 1998-1999 through 2012-2013 season, and there have only been 14 champions because of the lockout. And, actually 5 President's Trophy winner won cups in that span. Dallas ('99), Colorado ('01), Detroit ('02 & '08), and Chicago ('13). So technically, in the last 15 seasons, 36% of President's winners won the cup.

    Also, if you look a little further, one of the top four records in the NHL one the cup 11 of those 14 times. So the idea that you are better off being in the "middle of the pack" is quite ludicrous. In general, one of the best regular season teams wins the cup.

    I should note that this year will be one of the exceptions as the remaining teams had the 7th, 9th, 10th and 12th best regular season records. It is the first time since 1993, that none of the top four regular season teams made the conference finals (the worst part of the fact, is that was also the last time the Canadiens won the cup - god help us).

    Winning 36 % of anything just means u are a loser. Of course one of the top 4 will usually win i think that goes without saying. Your comment is stupid its like u just don't get it. I'm just curious how old are u? lol

    Its not 36%

    [/QUOTE]

    5 teams that won the President's trophy divided by 14 Stanley Cups awarded = 36%

    5/14 = .35714285 

    It's called math. Did they have it at your school?

    Let me break it down for you... the original poster said:

    "In fact I hope they finish in the middle of the pack and go into the playoffs on the road"

    Being one of the top two teams in your conference is not middle of the pack, and middle of the pack teams usually do not win many championships. In fact, five teams who had the best regular season record won the cup, and only three "middle of the pack" teams won the Stanley cup. The idea that you are better of finishing in the "middle of the pack" is completely nonsensical!

    Also if u exclude last year since it was a short season.  3/4 pres trophy winners lost in the first round and ofcourse this years bruins lost in the second round

    [/QUOTE]

    What does that have to with it? So you would really the Bruins be a worse regular season team because you think that some how increases their chances of winning the cup? You know his gets knocked in the first round more often then President's Trophy winners? Middle of the pack teams!
