Depends how its setup, probably same/worse chance.

I don't understand how they will make a wildcard system that doesn't have major flaws.

What I imagine will happen is the 7th and 8th seeds will be filled by 2 teams with the best records(not currently in the playoffs) within the conference.

Example:

West:
--Canucks 105pts *
--Ducks 103pts *
--Coyotes 101pts *
--Sharks 100pts *
--Kings 99pts *
--Flames 89pts
--Oilers 79pts


Midwest:
--Backhawks 111pts*
--Blues 104pts*
--Stars 96pts*
--Wild 93pts
--Jets 87pts
--Avalanche 87pts
--Blue Jackets 74pts
(numbers are made up, i don't know if those numbers are possible)

playoffs = *

Basically only top 3 teams from each division would be guaranteed, rest would be seeded based on points.

I don't know if it would combine East/West or how the playoffs would be seeded.

If the schedules aren't equal it will hurt the teams in a tougher division.
