I just heard Bob Mckenzie on TSN's Insider Trading say that they likely won't be doing intradivisional playoffs if we switch to the new four conference format, because the players objected. Instead it will likely be three teams from each conference plus two wild cards, playing in both the east and west. This would make it a bit easier for the Jackets to make it in if we get stuck in a tough division, but I'm still disappointed. I really liked the intensity of the intradivisional playoffs and was hoping to bring it back to the glory days of Patrick, Adams, Norris and Smythe.

(Please tell me I'm not the only one who still has a copy of "Quest for the Silver Dream" (the 1990 playoffs documentary)).
