Got these e-mails in response to your beatdown earlier:
What this clown doesn't realize because he watches Felicity on Netflix is that the Divisional Playoff format has not been used in the NHL since the 1992-93 season. Look: the 1992-93 Islanders are recognized as the Patrick Division champions because they won the Patrick Division Playoffs. We all know the Pens ran house that year during the regular season.
Now, check out this link. As it turns out, the NHL doesn't want teams to raise banners for Divisonal playoff championships anyway. According to this article:
"In the spring of 1993, the Islanders defeated Washington in the first round of the playoffs and stunned Mario Lemieux and the Penguins in the second to be the conference representative for the division formerly known as the Patrick. To honor the occasion, as many teams did, the franchise ordered a banner. But the N.H.L. did not officially recognize division titles won in the playoffs. In the eyes of the league, only the first-place team from the six-month regular season earned the right to have a banner. The N.H.L. told the Islanders they could keep the banner above the Coliseum ice for one year only."
So, we and the Moriarty e-mailer are both right. But we are more right because this guy sucks. This also means the Pens have a false banner hanging in the rafters at CONSOL.
1991-1992 Patrick Division banner hanging over there on the right.
