First off, I should state that I follow the East a lot closer than the West because I'm a Leafs fan. Like you, I think Philadelphia will fall off the map and I believe Buffalo will be passed by a determined Washington (who benefits greatly from their remaining schedule against Southeastern teams). The West is a little more cut and dried, and again I don't follow them as closely, so I don't see any change in the current field of eight, although their seedings will likely change.

And wouldn't NBC kill for that first-round East matchup of Pittsburgh and Washington?
