To Round Reshuffle Or Set Seeds In Stone?

leave a comment »

So I’m watching the NBA/NHL playoffs this year, as I always do in the spring, and I got the thinking. What makes the better playoff — automatic reseeding after every round like the NHL or brackets set in stone like the NBA?

After much thought, and 30 seconds later, I decided that while I like set brackets better, automatic reseeding gives a bigger reward to the teams that had the better regular-season record. This in turn actually makes the regular season more relevant.

Even though I wouldn’t mind automatic reseeding for the NBA or NHL, I’d keep the brackets set for March Madness. For obvious reasons, of course.
