I too don't get this play-out thing. They could've just taken 8 teams and made a reverse play-off. The best in points vs worst in best of 5 series, then the wining 4 teams are safe and the remaining 4 still battle to win their series and be safe while those 2 teams who lose both series are relegated. Instead they add still another 16 or so games to the schedule to all these teams...
