NHL.com posted the proposal.

"The schedule matrix would see each team play teams in the other conference both home and away.

In the seven-team divisions, teams would play intraconference foes three times per season and five of the six intradivision foes five times a season. The sixth opponent within the division would be played four times. In the eight-team divisions, teams would play intraconference opponents three times and intradivision opponents either four or five times per season on a rotating basis."


I guess there might be three-four extra Mountain/Pacific games for Avs compared to if they only had met out of division teams twice.

"Under the proposed system, the top three teams in each of the four divisions would qualify for the postseason. The final four spots would go to the two teams in each conference with the next-best records. So, in theory, five teams from one division and just three from the other division in each respective conference could make the postseason."

It's a bit similar to AHL playoffs. It's not that big a change compared to how it works now though.
