I wouldn't expect the 7DFII to get the 1DX/5DIII AF system. You know Canon .
The thing is, cramming 61 AF points in the small crop viewfinder seems somewhat impractical anyway.
So, not sure the 7DII actually needs the 61-point AF system.
It would be very welcome, though, if Canon adds a few extra AF points and improves the AF system as a whole.
The most important thing, of course, is that the 7DII gets a much (!) improved sensor.
Since the 7D series is positioned as a sports body, I wouldn't expect more than 20mp.
16-18mp is more likely, together with a modest speed increase to 9fps.
Overall, I'm hoping for a 16mp low noise sensor, improved 27-point AF system, 9 fps, $1899 max.
First they said Canon would never give us a D300 challenger, then they released 7D. They said 5D III will get 7D AF at best, but probably same as 5D II and laughed at thought of it getting 1D X AF. I'd be surprised if they didn't give us at least AF that was equal in performance as 5D III if not 61 points.
