I'm thinking that would not go into effect until the realignment takes place.

Then it would be the top five teams of each conference, with intra-conference playoffs (probably a "play in" round best of 3 games for #s 4 and 5 seeds), until you have the top four teams (and then conference X champ would play conference Z champ; conference Y champ would play conference W champ to determine the two teams to mean in Stanley Cup finals).

But let's stick to discussing the 2013 "season" schedule in this thread (we can make an "expanding playoff" thread to discuss this otherwise).
