    Yeah...I mean really it doesn't matter who wins the Conn Smythe, it just seemed like a bit of an odd choice. The fact that the Blackhawks had 4 or 5 guys that could've won it just shows what a great team they are.

    Crawford should have gotten it. No way they win the Cup without him.

    Everyone makes the playoffs. It prevents hurt feelings. Also, instead of the Hart, Vezina, Norris, etc. they're just going to give everyone a "Participation Award."

    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 fewest 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.

    I wonder what our chances will be in the new system. We have Detroit to contend with now.

    Ottawa will be fine with Florida, Tampa, and Buffalo to beat up on. At worst they are on par with Toronto and Montreal, Detroit may have an edge but not for long. Boston is legit.

    That's slightly complicated, but at least we have some teams in the Conference who can be beaten with decent regularity.
