Anyone know why the DVHL went away from a double elimination in their playoffs?

Looking at the schedules, from what I can see they are only doing this at all Squirt levels and PW / Bantam B American. I have no idea if this is new or has always been that. I'm guessing they just don't have enough time to give every level that many games.

I think at U16 and U18 the top teams don't participate in playoffs and get byes right to districts

National Bound levels have always had the 1st place team get an automatic bye to districts. The other teams still play a double elimination playoff to determine the 2nd place team.

Stupidity ... how does a team from the winner bracket get eliminated by the loser bracket team after just one win.  They each have one lose.  Why have a playoff and just move the top 2 teams to districts if its a $ issue.

Where do you see this happening? You aren't eliminated until you lose 2.

At the A level, first place gets automatic byes

Ok, I do see what you are talking about. Blazers advanced to the final play in game without losing. Delco lost one, then advanced to the play in game. Delco then beat the Blazers to advance to play Genesis.
I'm guessing it has always been done that way, not sure. It seems like the playoff the first weekend is sort of to determine the 2nd and 3rd place teams in Districts. So Blazers advance as the #2 team and Delco is #3. They then play one final game to determine who plays in the District final. The Blazers did benefit from only having to play 2 games that weekend where as Delco played 3. 

Looks like 14AA and 18AA had the same format. The schedule is there ahead of time so its not like the DVHL is changing the rules as they go along.
