    The current NHL format is awful.

      Agreed but then you need to get rid of the divisions because they are useless. Why have 3 bye's for teams that are going to make the playoffs any way. How many times did a 6th place team have a better match up against number 3 than 4 & 5 did against each other. Just make it one conference.

      Plus you have to even up the games with in the conference.

        Exactly. You can't play more division games than conference games but seed only in the conference. Even though they are sort of doing that now with the wild cards.

          Go back to the 1 through 16 format.

                    They could have scored 6 times on that last PP but came away with a bunch of posts
