In last week’s Eastern Conference prediction we looked at how the new rules, new system and new rosters might affect the standings and consequently the playoff births in the east. Today we take a stab at the Western Conference from our Northeastern division perspective.
Western matchups will be even fewer than ever with only 10 matches slated for the entire season.
The West will be wild and closer than ever. Several teams will be within 5 points of the final playoff spot but still too far away from a birth.
