With the realignment starting next year, do you want teams to be seeded or a pre-determined set up (East and West) in the 3rd round of the playoffs?

My preference is to re-seed based on points which I think is the most fair. So be it if it's an all-West Cup finals or an all-East Cup finals. Nobody seemed to mind when the Habs played the Rangers in '79 for the Cup or the Flyers played the Isles the following season for the Cup.
