Looks like the NHL will have a Stanley Cup winner this season.

The proposal includes the top four teams in each conference (based on points percentage) playing one another for seeding, while the remaining 16 teams would play best-of-five series in a play-in round.

The setup for the play-in round would be No. 5 seed vs. No. 12 (with the winner advancing to play the fourth seed), No. 6 vs. No. 11 (winner plays the third), No. 7 vs. No. 10 (winner plays the second) and No. 8 vs. No. 9 (winner plays the first).

That would leave 16 teams to compete for the Stanley Cup, as in a typical postseason.

I have the Golden Showers +550 to win the West. This could actually make it tougher since they would have to beat Colorado AND St. Louis to win the West whereas before it would have only been OR

Nothing yet, Top.

I'm eager to see a league use two or three locations to hold five or six games a day.

Talk about all-day action.
