"No play in"...16 teams make the playoffs...is what was said is in the current proposal this evening on TSN Insiders.
Top 3 teams in each Conference...with 4 more teams being slotted into the 4th position in each Conference via a "wildcard" scenario. No details were given/known.
Time will tell! Maybe it get massaged again and changes to something different.
