Reports coming out of the GM meetings today are that the general managers are in support of adding one extra wild card from each league, creating a wild card round.
The question, then, is whether the wild card round would be a 1-game, do-or-die with the top seed awaiting the winner or whether it would be a brief 3-game series.
Either way, I am totally on board with this. I think it re-emphasizes the regular season and creates a much stronger reward for winning your division. Especially if it winds up being a 1-game series.
