NHL Needs to Dump their Playoff Proposal and Take Mine

1. Teams and conferences remain the same as the current proposal (per Pierre LeBrun):

Atlantic: CAR - CBJ - NJD - NYI - NYR - PHI - PIT - WSH
Central: BOS - BUF - DET - FLA - MTL - OTT - TBL - TOR
Midwest: CHI - COL - DAL - MIN - NSH - STL - WPG
Pacific: ANA - CGY - EDM - LAK - PHX - SJS - VAN

2. Top three teams in each division are guaranteed a playoff spot.

3. The fourth and fifth teams in each division have a three-game playoff for the divisional wildcard playoff spot.

4. First and second rounds are held within the division, i.e. 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3.

5. First round is best-of-five.

6. Everything else is the same as the current format.


For Wild fans, that's potentially THREE more times the Wild make the playoffs (2006, 2009, 2011). You can't tell me you wouldn't want to see the NHL pick up this option.

Click it for the actual matchups. I like it.
I'd like it that way ^
