Theoretically we could have 2 "eastern" teams or 2 "western" teams playing against each other for the cup Ex. Edmonton vs Colorado or Boston vs New York. Also keep in mind that there is a cross over system like what the AHL or the CFL has. Look at the past AHL playoffs for an example of how it works.
It's actually 3 teams from each division and then two wildcard teams. And I thought they didn't go through with the "re-seeding" playoffs. I believe conference play is still in effect.

The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the fewest points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for berths in the conference championship series.

The winners of the conference championships advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

That can't be right. He's how old?

Edit: 30 it looks like.

"Retire" is code for being able to go back to Russia and play.

I wonder if the Devils now appeal the Kovalchuk contract and get their 1st back this year. They could definitely use it.... Hah.

And now... TRADE HEMSKY TO NEW JERSEY!!

Is retirement the way to get out of his NHL contract to sign back in the KHL?

Do they fall in the new long term contract situation where they get penalized as well?

I think some of you are forgetting that Hemsky has very little value.

Hemsky might get you one bottom 6er. A pick won't fetch you another.

In order to terminate the contract he needs to first retire. Then @NHLDevils can terminate the contract which they will. He can later decide

Brian Lawton ‏@brianlawton9 1m
to play in the KHL for north of 10mio cash, play a couple years and then come back to @NHL if he wants on new deal. Nothing to stop this

Brian Lawton ‏@brianlawton9 43s
from happening. This one was heavy out there a while ago and well where there was smoke a fire started today!!!

The legal question is: do the Devils still have to pay the 1st round pick?
