Lately, I have been hearing a lot of talk from people about getting rid of conferences in the NBA. For those of you familiar with the NBA, the Eastern conference is very weak. One team in the Playoffs this year has a losing record in the East, that's how bad it is. So a lot of people are saying it should just be the top 16 teams in the Playoffs, and when you look at it, it sets up way more exciting matchups. So here is what the NHL Playoffs would look like if it was just the top 16 teams. It would actually be the same 16 in the Playoffs, just different matchups. Honestly I think that the matchups right now in real life are more exciting than these ones, but try and see anything you think would be exciting that could happen in these Playoffs. Here's some of mine.

-This could have some pretty exciting semifinal games. Most likely matchups would be Bruins vs. Blues and Hawks vs. Penguins.
