If they have top 4 in each division, then divisions need to be pools not divisions.

And the pools would need to be according to the previous season's success.

Boston wins the cup, they're in Pool A.

Florida was last in the conference, they're in Pool B.

Tampa Bay got to the conference final, Pool A.

So on...

Or, NO divisions.

Or, top 8.

Can NOT have top 4 in each division, the league will go to **** fast.

Which is still unfair if you're competing against 15 teams for 4 playoff spots instead of against 13 teams in the other conference

Is it as dumb if you're playing the 7 other teams in your division 5 or 6 times each while playing the teams in the other division in your conference 2 or 3 times each? If the schedule is so division heavy, then I really don't see how it's better to do conference seeding.

Yes, it's still a statistically built in advantage for the teams in the 7-team divisions. There's always going to be one less team for them to have to beat out.

Yes, but statistics are still inapplicable to the concept.

It is technically statistics but anyone with half a point of IQ can understand that the chances of landing a playoff spot is better in a 14 team conference than in a 16 team conference

4 spots / 14 teams = 28.6% probability
4 spots / 16 teams = 25.0% probability

28.6 vs 25.0 = 14.4% better shot at making the playoffs

:sigh: I don't agree with the way you calculated that 14.4% to begin with.

Is each conference going to have one eight team and one seven team division or are the conferences going to be 16 and 14? I had thought they were going with the former.

Hmm, well if they're going with one 8 and one 7 in each conference then that's pretty fair if the top 4 teams advance among both as long as more than 1 spot can come from each division

Bring Columbus or Nashville to the East. They need the stars like Ovechkin and Crosby visiting more often to fill the Stadium. IMO it should be Columbus. Nashville is a lost cause.

Nashville is a lost cause? They've actually built a fanbase and are drawing quite well by all reports.

My only hope is that detroit stays in the west, the playoffs arent determined by top 4 in each division because thats just stupid, and possibly bring back the original division names. The catch is, there will always be fans and a team unhappy, it is impossible to please everybody. That being said, for the sake of the NHL and expanding and becoming as popular as the other 3 major sports, I think its best to keep names like Pacific, Midwest, East, South and change the conference names back to wales and clarence. That being said, your going to seriously need some realignment. My biggest concern is the divisions though, if the top 4 from both make it, its obviously easier for the 7 team division which is completely unfair, it should be top 8 teams makes it. If you win your division but have 4th best points in the conference, your the 4th side, bottom line.

Paid attendance was up by over 10% this year. The team won it's first playoff series in franchise history. The ownership and management finally get how to market to the city. I don't think Nashville is anything resembling a lost cause.
