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.
Should the Coyotes be moved to the ETZ a six team Central Conference is worth considering. Though you could keep the four conferences - they would be split 7-6-8-9, allowing Columbus to switch places with the Floiridian teams.
The rationale for having a six team Central Conference is that pretty much ensures the Central Conference will always be involved in crossovers, thus greatly reducing the frequency of ETZ vs PTZ crossovers.
