Realistically....How many teams should be in the NHL?

I would also change the playoff structure so that (a) all teams are included and (b) the early rounds start during the regular season (think FA Cup style, only best-of, a real series).
This would effectively emphasize just how hard/special it is to win the regular season trophy (harder to win PT than SC, IMO), thereby increasing its value, which would have the knock-on effect of creating two prizes/distinctions for teams to compete for.
And we should work in a "champions league" type situation to interact more with our European brethern and sisteren.
