This is not the 80's super stupid 4/5 make playoffs though, here is 4/7 so it won't be exactly same teams like then, this still gives lots of leeway. Perfect mix for me.
Good post Holden. One reason the divisional playoffs tainted me a bit was because of the 80's Oilers and Flames were so good Winnipeg got punished by being in that division. That being said now the parity is much closer and I highly doubt that situation crops up again. Also as you said itís no longer 4 of 5 teams making the playoffs so we will get allot more variety this time around and that is absolutely where you learn to hate teams.
