Scrap three divisions and go back to four

I’ve been a fan of hockey for 30 years and I must say the playoff format has no luster any more.

I wish the league would go back to four divisions and abolish the current format where the three division leaders automatically get in, because the intensity in the rivalries is no longer there.

What ever happened to the Battle of Alberta?

I feel the four-division format would lead to a better race to the playoffs. It would also make rivalries in the post-season better.
