Yes the NHL playoffs are fair. The top 8 teams in each conference make it to the playoffs. It doesn't matter what team your own, it just matters if you made the top 8 teams. The playoffs are completely fair.

16, 8 from east and 8 from west.

16 total, 8 in each conference

16 - 8 teams from the Eastern Conference, 8 teams from the Western Conference

To make the nhl playoffs you have to be the top team in your division or in the top 5 teams in your conference besides the division champions. 8 teams are taken from each conference.

There are 15 teams in the eastern confrence (NHL)

there are 30 overall teams in the NHL 15 in each Conference 8 out of those 15 in each conference make the playoffs.

The math, assuming all teams are created equal, seems simple. Each conference in the NHL sends eight teams to the playoffs. That means that 57 percent (8-of-14) of Western teams will make the postseason, and only 50 percent (8-of-16) of Eastern teams will do so.

The NHL playoff schedule works similarly every year. There are sixteen teams that make the playoffs and these face off in best of seven series until only eight teams remain.
