This notion may have some merit if this were a one game-championship game..but even in this case, the best is the team that does what is required to advance/win at that particular point in time.
Spolier Alert: sometimes, the best team doesn't always win.
However, in a best of seven series such as the NHL, I 100% completely disagree with you (respectfully). The best team always wins.
