Just leave it at top four in each division.
I think they just want to get people used to the wildcard make four when they add the wildcard play in round.
Also not a fan of the schedule matrix. Should be weighted heavier to divisional games. I wouldn't even bother having that extra game against intra conference opponents.
The NHL proposed that last year, and the NHLPA shot it down. What makes you think the NHLPA would like that idea this time around?
The wild card idea at least makes it so that better teams in stronger divisions get in over lesser teams in weaker divisions.
