Does anybody know of any playable league in any database where there is a preliminary playoff round between the teams that finish mid-table from the regular season, the winners of which compete in the playoffs against the leagues' top placed teams?

I am trying to recreate the 1974/75 NHL where:

  • the top 4 teams qualify for the playoffs;
  • the 8 teams that finish behind the top 4 play in a preliminary round (best of 3 series);and
  • the 4 winners of the preliminary round games qualify for the playoffs and play against the top 4 teams from the regular season.

I have the regular season and the preliminary round up and running but I cannot figure out how to set up the playoffs (which will need to draw the 4 winners of the preliminary round and the 4 divisional winners). :-k

The SHL has a similar set up.
Top six teams to playoffs, seven-through-ten to a "play-in round"

Hello

I have a request for those who are confident/experienced with the editor.

I'd like the finnish Liiga to be edited in order to feature play-down/relegation structure.
Liiga has 15 teams, while Mestis has 13.

Here's the idea I have :

At the end of the season, 2 last teams of Liiga play a set of games against team 2nd of the Mestis League.
Winner of Mestis is sent to Liiga automatically, and winner of the relegation league gets to stay/go to Liiga.

Relegation league would feature home/away games between all 3 teams, with points counting the same as regular season.

Can someone set this up for me ? with TBL or xECK29x rosters ?

Thanks by advance !

(maybe this post is offtopic ? If it needs a new topic, I'd be thankful for a move by and admin ^^)
