Nah, I think the top 8 will be the one that matters.

I have a hard time seing 6 of the top 8 clubs being from either the Metropolitan or the Atlantic division.

If max 5 clubs from either division ranks in the top 8, the top 8 effectivly ends up making the PO's. It is not impossible that we will not see the top 8 from the East make the PO's (say Phi, Pitt, NYR, Was, Carolina, and one of NJD/CBJ/NYI all being ahead of Buf, Fla, MTL, Tor, Ott, Tampa and Toronto), but its not likely.

top 8:
Bruins

So how would the playoffs work with the new rules. im not sure if i understand them correcest pts.
Top 3 in each div are locks. 2 wildcards.

Ie, the bolded and underlined teams are locks and the bolded teams forms the top 8. In your example the top 8 ends up making the PO's, and like I said above, unless 6 of the top 8 teams in the East comes from one division, the top 8 will end up making it.
