playoffs:

if 5th place team in west has more points than 4th place team in central, the 5th place team in west takes the 4th place central teams spot and vica versa. same goes for east and south divisions

1st round

top 4 teams from each division play each other best of 7 series

1 vs 4: 1 wins

2 vs 3: 2 wins

2nd round

1 vs 2: 1 wins

3rd round

top team from each division plays each other

1west vs 1central: 1west wins

1south vs 1 east: 1south wins

finals

winner of each match play eachother

1west vs 1 south: 1west wins

-there's no teams that are left in the middle of no where like florida and tampa were last proposal

-majority of rivalries are kept together: PIT vs PHI,PIT vs WAS, DET vs CHI, BOS vs MTL, CGY vs EDM etc...

-new rivalries can brew: NYR vs BOS, BUF vs PIT, VAN vs SEA, WIN vs MIN etc...

-new structure to give teams more incentive to do better than other divisions teams due to possible crossover of teams.

-dont think there will be an expansion until bad financial teams do better and revenue sharing is better. expansion cities should be NOT be in non-traditional hockey markets, thats what screwing everything up

so what do you think? feedback and other ideas?

Current format makes it much more interesting, new match ups in the playoffs year after year and doesnt get boring. You can have a dominant division and a crap division, and this format would benefit crap divisions.

Cross over would get confusing, personally wouldnt like the idea.

I wouldn't change anything about the current format.

the problem with that is teams like dallas and minnesota are complaining about their divisions. dallas and minnesota are much closer to the central division than the NW and pacific. this has been a big problem for several teams not being in divisions and complaining about travel so a format switch is necessary to satisfy teams needs. since winnipeg will move to the western conference a team must move over to the east. all of detroit, nashville and columbus are arguing that it should be their teams respectively. a structure switch is necessary to accommodate all teams needs

the idea of having Datsuk, Sid/malkin, Ovi, giroux, stamkos, all the staals, kovulchuk, nash/richards, and tavares in the same division is scorgasmic..
