It's not though. It's 3 out of 8, in your own division. Then 2 wildcards out of 10 teams.

Yes... In the east... And it's 3 out of 7 and 2 out of 8... I don't understand the confusion. There's one less team fighting for 3 division spots and 2 less teams fighting for 2 wildcard spots.

(ASSUMING ALL TEAMS HAVENT PLAYED A GAME)

For West teams:

To clinch a top 3 seed in division - 42.8% chance
To clinch a wild card spot - 25% chance
To clinch a playoff spot - 57.1%

For East teams:

To clinch a top 3 seed in division - 30% chance
To clinch a wild card spot - 20% chance
To clinch a playoff spot - 50%

I understand you perfectly, all I'm saying is the way that this format is good is that if you are at least a competitive, playoff contender type team, this format actually benefits you. The only teams this hurts is weak teams and bubble teams. When we are a perennial playoff contender, we don't have to worry about competing against Pittsburgh, NY Rangers, Philly, New Jersey, and the Isles in a couple years. Whatever the Atlantic division teams are doing, doesn't affect us at all. Hopefully after we draft MacKinnon/Jones/Barkov/Drouin, and some of our other top prospects pan out, we can at least be the 3rd best out of 8 teams, most of which don't figure to be that impressive. Otherwise we're in trouble.
