You know if that were to happen next season where the top 3 make it in and a 6th place team has more points, the change would happen quickly.
In the 12 years of divisional play-offs from 82-93, you had 1 division with 6 teams and they never had a situation where the 6th place team would have finished 3rd in the Adams. The 6th place team finished with more points than the 4th place team from the Adams only once in 88. It was the Penguins, but even with conference play-offs, they would have been 9th and still on the outside looking in.
