How would you do playoffs in this scenario?

 

I would have top 2 teams from each division make it. They would play each other for division champ, 8 teams left. Then you would go to conference finals, 4 teams left. Final 4 would be seeded, either by regular season record, maybe playoff record.

I know it's been talked about in the past but what about 4 conferences, 8 divisions. I'd go with this:

 

A Canadian Conference 

East

Quebec

Montreal

Toronto

Ottawa

West

Calgary

Edmonton

Winnipeg

Vancouver

 

Western Conference

Div 1

Anaheim

LA

San Jose

Las Vegas

Div 2

Arizona

Colorado

Dallas

Minnesota

 

Atlantic Conference

Metro Division

NJ

NYR

NYI

Philly

Southern Division

Washington

Tampa Bay

Florida

Carolina

 

Northern Conference

Div. 1

Boston

Buffalo

Pittsburgh

Columbus

Div. 2

Detroit

St. Louis

Chicago

Nashville

 

I'd say go with creative conference/division names, maybe the Gretzky Conference for example.

 

Each team would play:

6 games vs division               6x3=18

4 games vs other division      4x4=16

2 games vs other conference  2x24=48
