Madness on Ice

The two most dominant American sports events in my mind are the NFL Playoffs and March Madness, both of which are single elimination. It's about time the NHL got in on that action.

Instead of the crap preseason the NHL does now, the NHL should playd a single-elimination tournament for like the Stanley Saucer or something. Seeding and brackets would be based off the previous year''s standings, and lower seeds would host the game. There'd be a day or two off between each game.
I'm undecided on whether or not the conferences should be seperate and meet at the final or be mixed the whole way.

Doing just the east, based on today's standings, here's how I see it playing out. I'm not biased at all.
