1 Anaheim vs. 4 San Jose
2 Vancouver vs. 3 Los Angeles

1 Chicago vs. 4 Tampa Bay (wild-card)
2 Nashville vs. 3 St. Louis

Hmm, if an expanded playoff is really an idea, I suppose this single wild-card spot could be played for, between #16 and #17: Tampa Bay vs. Philadelphia.

I sure hope he left something out. That is crazy.

EDIT: see Tinalera below; yes, it does look like wild cards will stay within their conference, so this is just like the CFL system. (x2, because there are two conferences)

EDIT2: oops, yeah that doesn't answer if it stays divisional ALWAYS when it is 4 teams per division. I hope so. Why not.
