Agreed, but I could see the NHL taking a page from baseball last year/the NCAA tournament in recent years and having two one-game playoffs to determine the #8 seed. You do have the time between the end of the season and the start of the 16-team playoffs to have 'play-in' games.

I do like the synochrity of the 16-team, 16-win tournament, but let's be honest it's only been 16 wins for like twenty years of the NHL's history. There's a reason Wing fans throw octipii on the ice, it was 8 wins for many years.
