I don't see how a complicated wildcard system is more desirable. Anyone know the rationale?
Agree, peter. And i am also no fan of more teams in one conference than the other, it's just silly. Perhaps they're preparing for expansion, otherwise to me these are silly changes and they're trying to fix something that is not broken. Bob Clarke, Ray Ferraro and Aaron Ward felt the same way tonight on TSN.
