    Should’ve post this in this thread… not the Wild Playoff thread. Still not a fan of the current playoff format. Been this way for 8-10 years. It should be seed the teams 1-8 in each conference. Not this play with in your division for the first 2 rounds.

    Agreed especially when certain divisions are stacked while others are dogshit (everyone besides Calgary in pacific). You often have a first round matchup between two teams that have no chance next round while two teams that could be in conference finals face off round 2 (Colorado and Vegas last year). Given that schedules are already uneven in terms of difficulty due to divisions you already have an imperfect system but ensuring divisional matchups kinda compounds the issue.
