Wow, do I love this idea. One unintended consequence: I could go 0-82, but simply structure my team to win three straight games in mid-April to earn that 8th spot. More realistically, if I knew I wasn't a Top 7 playoff contender, I would probably sit my stars mid-season if they were even remotely not fully healthy, saving them for the play-in. But that's quibbling -- and not even a bad outcome. Love this.
