I don't necessarily agree with it, but I could see the sell job being that 9th and 10 place teams get at least some "playoff" monies in a 3 or 5 game series.
Part of the re-alignment plan was a return to divisional play-offs. Could be top-5 in the division with the 4 and 5 seed having a play-in game or best of 3. Can't see it being much more than that.
I remember when the AHL tried the 7-10, 8-9 thing and from what I recall (could be wrong) that it wasn't received very well.
