There would have to be "wild card" rules that allow that better last-placed team to get that playoff spot...

For example....last year's WHL West final standings...

BC Division
x-Kelowna - 109
x-Kamloops - 84
x-Kootenay - 83
x-Vancouver - 61
x-Prince George - 57

US Division
x-Seattle - 94
x-Spokane - 62
x-Portland - 51
Tri City - 48

Prince George got the 4th playoff spot in the US Division and played the first round against Seattle.
