Default What the new realignment will mean

different come playoff time - fo sure



http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=6...d=nhl:topheads

The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs.

The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season points and regardless of division.

It will be possible, then, for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three.

The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the lowest number of points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for berths in the Conference Championship series.

The two divisional champions in each conference will then play in the conference finals to advance to the Stanley Cup Final

What the new alignment means: no more easy playoff berths for the Capitals!

It's going to be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much fun seeing them in the bottom half of the conference where they belong!

I see Pens, Rangers and Isles getting in from our Division
