Sixteen teams ultimately make the playoffs with NO one game play-in as has been rumored.
First and Second rounds would be "within Conference" (and this seems to be the tricky/unknown part).
Time will tell!
The "wildcard" would be the play in (likely between 4th and 5th of each of the 8 team conferences). It may not be one game, but from a timing perspective, I dont think they have time to do even a short series (ie 2 out of 3). Maybe they could do home and home, and if the series is split, you go to sudden death OT to settle it.
