9 teams won't make the playoffs in the East. 5 teams won't make the playoffs in the West. I think they really need to go back to square one on the new realignment... Such a terrible format at the moment.

There's no prize on HF for being first with the news, it's much better for everyone to wait for someone reliable to confirm it first.
