With NHL realignment talk seemingly moving ahead full steam, news has leaked out regarding the playoff picture in the new configuration.

Under the new alignment, three teams from each of the four conferences would make the playoffs, according to TSN.ca's Bob McKenzie. The rest of the playoff field would be made up of wild cards, according to McKenzie.

Under a proposed plan that the NHL and NHLPA have worked up, a four-conference realignment would place Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets with other Eastern time zone teams, according to the CBC's Elliotte Friedman.
