3 Halifax
4 Lewiston
5 Moncton
7 Quebec
8 Rimouski
9 Saint John

1 Baie-Comeau
2 Chicoutimi
3 Drummondville
4 Gatineau
5 Montreal
6 Rouyn-Noranda
7 Shawinigan
8 Val D'or
9 Victoriaville

There you have 2 divisions and you have it go 1/8 2/7 3/6 4/5 first round and then in the end you have an Atlantic vs Quebec/Telus final. Both Divisions have a fair shot at the cup and top teams only get put out in round 1 from an upset
Ok I put Quebec in the Atlantic rather than Drummondville.

Now this format the bottom teams are eliminated.
(#)=League Standings

Atlantic Round 1

(1) Saint John 1 vs 8 Lewiston (16)
(4) Moncton 2 vs 7 Acadie-Bathurst (15)
(5) Quebec 3 vs 6 PEI (9)
(6) Cape Breton 4 vs 5 Rimouski (8)
(18) Halifax Eliminated

Telus/Quebec Round 1

(2) Drummondville 1 vs 8 Val D'or (14)
(3) Victoriaville 2 vs 7 Chicoutimi (13)
(7) Rouyn-Noranda 3 vs 6 Montreal (12)
(10) Gatineau 4 vs 5 Shawinigan (11)
(17) Baie-Comeau Eliminated

I have noticed a slight problem though. Look at the 4vs5 series in both divisions/conferences. In the Atlantic that means that this year either the 6th or 8th ranked team is gone. Although that is not much different to this year though if PEI finishes strong you could see 7th play 8th. I guess though like in the NHL it can come down to luck. That will happen in any format that doesn't involve a 1/16 2/15 and so on

And there would be no crossover, doesn't matter if Baie-Comeau finished with 50 points and Halifax and Bathurst were below 30 points. No crossover
