But, to correct myself, it is the playoff format that sucks, not the alignment per se.
But this version is almost no different than the version that was approved by the NHL in December 2011. The difference was that there were eight teams in each conference out west and seven in each conference in the east. That's flipped with the last proposal a couple days ago announced by the NHL, and you think the NHL has a problem with that?
That's why I like my alignment and matrix scenario. Everything is even.
