Pretty much, though it is conceiveable that the top 3 of the division could be less than the 2nd wildcard number of points.
Yep. It now requires three numbers instead of just one. Min # for top 3 in division, Min # for top 8 in conference and Min # for top 5 in division.
Maximum Points for playoffs (~ to get MN) will be the lower of these 2 choices...
1) Top 3 in division (currently pens need 117)
2) Higher # between these other 2:
a. Top 8 in conference (currently 117)
b. Top 5 in division (currently 116)
Min (1, Max (a,b))
