The new format is weird this year is it actually 7 games in the rr, then quarters semis and finals, all in 16 days, that seems fast
World Champs starts a tad later this year though, playoffs is not enough to "miss it" you have to win a series aswell.

And the best Swedish players are always in the playoffs, too. Detroit and Vancouver, you know.
