Expand The Playoffs- The Players Respond

from the Hockey News via ESPN,
"Should the NHL increase the number of teams that qualify for the playoffs from 16 to 20?" That was the question posed to 30 NHL players as the league appears determined to increase the number of participating playoff teams in the near future, but don't expect players to take a victory lap if the announcement comes.
Best answer to the question-
No: "Teams 15 and 16 obviously are the least skilled, and it gets worse from there. Those teams won't upset nobody." -- Chris Higgins
