 there's a good chance the second and third best teams in the East will play in the first round for the second straight year.,With the top three teams in the Eastern Conference all coming out of the Atlantic Division
That imbalance has led some to push to abandon the division playoff format and go back to seeding teams one through eight by conference. Why stop there?
The minor league that brought 3-on-3 overtime to hockey more than a decade before the NHL followed suit is adding a new innovation this season for the playoffs.
The Southern Professional Hockey League will use a "pick your opponent" playoff format, with the first-place team choosing its first-round opponent from the teams that finished from fifth to eighth place, then the second- and third-place teams makes their choices before the final two teams get matched up. In the second round, teams will be matched by regular-season points.
 which already uses it.,SPHL President Jim Combs said he decided to bring this format to his 10-team league after a conversation with an executive from Austria's Erste Bank Eishockey Liga
"I immediately knew this was the greatest idea I'd ever heard," Combs said. "The person at the top earns the right to pick the weakest of the bottom four. He can base it on travel, he can base it on difficulty of opponent, how the guy has been playing the past three or four weeks. A lot of times, you don't want the eighth-place team because that's the guy who has hustled and played hard and put the team together the last two or three weeks of the season. That's the hot team."
 Combs said teams seem more open to picking what they believe is best matchup.,Combs said most teams started the year with thoughts of following the old format of picking the team with the fewest points as the opponent. But as the season has gone on
 he'd probably make it known he'd pick the lowest seed available in any case.,Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said if the format was used in the NHL
" Gulutzan said. "So to actually have to pick somebody,"The first thing that comes to my mind is all of us coaches are paranoid, you think immediately we've given them some fuel in a playoff series, like: 'Oh yeah, right, they picked us.'"
 the SPHL will broadcast the selection show at the end of the season so fans and teams can watch live as the matchups are chosen and the extra motivation is created for whoever is picked as the most desirable playoff opponent.,To add even more intrigue
"I think there would be some bulletin board material, who won the Stanley Cup the past two seasons with Pittsburgh. "I think that would certainly fire a team up if you're picking them because you think you could beat them."," said Columbus defenseman Ian Cole
Dallas general manager Jim Nill agrees with that sentiment, but it's not something I'd encourage our league to do and I couldn't see it ever happening.", saying "it might be great for their league
Others are more intrigued by the idea, respectively., pointing to the unfairness last year that had Pittsburgh and Columbus matched up in the first round despite finishing with the second and fourth most points in the league
" Buffalo backup goalie Chad Johnson said. "I mean,"It sounds like a great idea, why not if you're in first place you should have that choice of who you want to play? It gives you that advantage regardless, you might have struggled against them, because sometimes the eighth-place team, right?"
 NHL teams and a few people from the NHL league office about the new format and hopes it will become more widespread after people see the added drama it creates even if there is some initial hesitation.,Combs said he has heard from executives from other minor leagues
 when we started 3-on-3 overtime,"In 2004, everyone laughed at us and said 'Hey this will never happen at the top level, they're playing it,'" Combs said. "We played it for 10 years and the NHL adopted it, they revamped the All-Star Game. They have totally embraced it. Will the NHL take this? They might. I don't know why after all this excitement every sport wouldn't do it."
 judging from the 2017-18 NHLPA Player Poll.,Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is the most admired and appreciated player in the NHL
 the player you’d want to win one game,adidas Jakub Voracek jersey,A survey of more than 500 players resulted in Crosby being voted the most difficult to play against, best role model, and the player who would be a great coach., best team player
 and to Wayne Gretzky to the question of picking anyone all-time as a teammate.,adidas Mario Lemieux jersey,Crosby finished second to Connor McDavid for which player to start a franchise with
?Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon said Ron Francis is out as general manager but will remain with the team as president of hockey operations. The search will begin.
Boston Bruins forward David Backes is suspended for three games for a shoulder to the head of Detroit Red Wings forward Frans Nielsen in Tuesday’s 6-5 overtime victory.
Fergus Connolly, was arrested this week in Ann Arbor on suspicion of drunken driving. Police were waiting for lab data.,adidas Sidney Crosby jersey, director of performance science for Michigan’s football team
?Woody Durham, died Wednesday. He was 76., the retired “Voice of the Tar Heels” who called North Carolina football and basketball games for four decades
British cyclist Mark Cavendish crossed the finish line with ripped clothes and blood on his face after crashing during the opening team time trial at the Tirreno-Adriatico race in Italy.
Spanish rider Luis Leon Sanchez kept the leader’s jersey after the fourth stage of the Paris-Nice race as Dutch cyclist Wout Poels won the 18.5-kilometer time trial around Saint-Etienne.
Two-time Olympic figure skating gold medalist Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan will miss this month’s world championships in Milan,Authentic Phil Kessel jersey, because of ankle pain., Italy
 but he knows how many goals they have.,The Winnipeg Jets winger might not keep track of each time Alex Ovechkin or Evgeni Malkin scores
" Laine said. "I always pretty much know where's everyone at.","I just sometimes look at the scoreboard and the score sheets
 at 32,Through the weekend,adidas Sidney Crosby jersey, Laine was tied with Ovechkin at 40 goals atop the NHL and looking to reach 50 for the first time in his career. Just 19, is seeking his eighth 50-goal season and seventh goal-scoring title., he is a real threat to win his first Rocket Richard Trophy. Ovechkin
 too.,Ovechkin is keeping track
' and all of this kind of stuff. Of course they want points,"If you close to top three or top five, of course you pay attention, 'I don't care about the stats, they want goals."," Ovechkin said Monday. "I don't believe when someone says
 the second selection in 2016 who has shown he deserves to be in the conversation for the best goal-scorer in hockey today.,The goals race comes down to Ovechkin and Malkin — the Nos. 1 and 2 picks from 2004 — and Laine
 70 percent chance he's going to put it in the back of the net. I've never played with anyone like that — that dangerous,"He's got a gift for scoring goals, that lethal."," Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot said. "It's even more profound that you look for him in the offensive zone because if he gets the puck — it's crazy to say — it's like a 60
 Auston Matthews and Ilya Kovalchuk have over the past two decades. Ovechkin is no doubt the greatest goal-scorer of this generation,Winnipeg teammates aren't shy to say Laine's abilities are "Ovechkin-like" because Laine is scoring as a teenager the way only the Washington Capitals superstar, now two away from being the 20th player in NHL history to reach 600., Steven Stamkos
Coach Barry Trotz thinks 50 is a more important milestone for his Russian winger given his recent trajectory.
" Trotz said. "I think the way he looks at it,"The 600 will be something he'll have forever, it's so hard to do and he had a down year (last season). He wants to show that he can still do it.", but I think he'll put a lot of pride if he can get 50 this year
After notching the 598th of his career and 40th of the season, but 50 is better.", Ovechkin said that "40 is nice
 I don't know,"It would be pretty amazing and pretty unbelievable," Ovechkin said. "I still have time, a little bit of help from upstairs, we'll see.",adidas Joe Pavelski jersey, and (with) a little bit of luck
 Laine said scoring down the stretch is important for team goals and he has certainly helped the Jets. Laine has scored 15 goals in his past 11 games going into Monday's showdown in Washington.,Like Ovechkin
 and now 50 is in reach as he clicks with linemates Nikolai Ehlers and Paul Stastny.,The most prolific young Finn since Teemu Selanne said winning the Rocket Richard Award has always been a dream
 I was at 25 and nobody was talking about even 40. There's a lot of things that could happen. If we're playing like this with Niky and Paul,"You never know what's going to happen, why not?",Authentic Jakub Voracek jersey," Laine said. "Ten games ago
 Mario Lemieux and Marcel Dionne have scored 40 goals in a season more times than Ovechkin.,Ovechkin already has seven more goals than he put up all last season to get to 40 for the ninth time. Only Wayne Gretzky
" Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri said. "He makes it seem so effortless. He's got a very special shot.","I don't think people understand how hard that is to do
 "I'm sure that day will come.",Authentic Mario Lemieux jersey,Jets center Andrew Copp wondered if Laine's shot is even more special than Ovechkin's. Copp hasn't seen Laine score from the center red line yet but joked
 it's almost like he's throwing darts at the net,adidas Evgeni Malkin jersey,"Ovi's got a big," Chiarot said. "It's just a little flick of the wrist and it's kind of where he wants it. ... I think it's the most dangerous shot in the league.", winding up wrister and it comes off just kind of so crazy whereas Patty
Jets coach Paul Maurice senses the confidence oozing from Laine just from watching him at practice. He can see an entirely different player from a month ago.
 confidence is a critical piece. That puck is off Patty's stick where he wants it right now every time. So he's feeling it,"If you're getting close to 50,Authentic Evgeni Malkin jersey,Authentic Sidney Crosby jersey, you're feeling good about your game, he's feeling good."," Maurice said. "Any of these guys
 but he's playing some of the best hockey of his career.,Playing on the same team as Sidney Crosby could leave Malkin underappreciated at times
" Malkin said recently. "It's like every shot goes in. It's funny sometimes. I'm trying to do my best.",Authentic Sidney Crosby jersey,"I have confidence right now
