I personally like the new playoff format. I hope they keep it exactly as proposed with the Wild Card cross overs & I hope they stick with reseeding the final 4 teams.
The whole East/West thing is boring. Divisional playoffs would rock, crossovers would be very exciting & if the league decides to stick with reseeding the final 4, we could see very cool things happen like a Wild Card meeting it's biggest divisional rival in the SCF. Could you imagine the story and the media coverage? It would be amazing to hear about a team like Boston getting in by the skin of its teeth, conquering the Atlantic division & then meeting Montreal in the finals to play for the cup.
Personally, Just to make things fair, I would make the Wild Card teams play a single game elimination, with the winner holding the right to the final seed. This would be perfect because the Wild Card with more points has a chance to cross over, but the 4th seeded team could still defend its position by defeating the Wild Card.
Hope exactly this happens.
