Bob mckenize with some updates from hit twitter feed:
@TSNBobMcKenzie: Top 3 teams in each of two 8-team East conferences make the playoffs. Two wild cards from remaining 10 East teams also make the playoffs.
@TSNBobMcKenzie: Top 3 teams in each of two 7-team West conferences make playoffs. Two wild cards from remaining 8 West teams also make the playoffs.
@TSNBobMcKenzie: Playoff format remains old divisional style, 1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3 though it remains to be seen how the wild cards are slotted for first-round.
Next tweets confirms teams in divisions
@TSNBobMcKenzie: I assume schedule matrix stays same as Dec/2011 proposal. Clubs in 7-team conf play 6x 6 in conf (36), and home-and-away with other 23 (46).
@TSNBobMcKenzie: 8-team conferences also play home-and-away with 22 out of conf teams (44) but play either 5 or 6 games vs. conference rivals (38).
@TSNBobMcKenzie: NHL governors were made aware of realignment proposals today by league but cautioned that NHLPA and B of G approval still required.
