If the other night is any indication, Jets/Wild 6 times a year should be great.

Jets/Wings... not so much. :oops:

This stinks... Just leave it alone! So I guess the conference winners will play in the NHL semis?

Do you have 4 teams per conference make the playoffs or does everyone???

Top 4 in each conference would make the playoffs. Same amount of teams in the playoffs as there is now.

Can't remember if it's for sure or not, but I think it's being shelved for at least another year :(

This is great for teams like the Wild. Because we would actually be able to be in a conference (or "division") with teams that are actually in our timezone. Currently, every single team in our division is not in our timezone. Which is ridiculous.
