How do you see the WC work? I would assume in the East Conferences, it would be 4 vs. 5 playing a short series to determine who plays the 1 seed in that conference.
The big issue there is that a 4 seed in the west confs are already in the round of 16, but a 4 seed in the East is in a play-in series. That kinda sucks.
NHL Head Coaches are, by and large, vastly overrated, especially when correlating the success and failure of the team to coaching prowess. Todd McLellan is the epitome of this.
