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).
