Colorado has a significant change coming. We now have monster teams to play either 5 or 6 times per season in Anaheim, San Jose, and Los Angeles. We also get to see old friends Vancouver, Calgary, and (oh crap) Edmonton on a regular basis. I think we're looking at the best conference in the NHL for the foreseeable future.
Welcome to the Western Conference. We're big, We're fast. And, now there's more of us (as compared to the pigs in the East).
It gets worse, there are 8 teams in the conference and only 4 continue on to the playoffs. Eastern teams have a better chance of making the playoffs as there are only 7 teams in the conference and, again, 4 teams make the playoffs.
Personal opinion... This sucks.
Get Puck Daddy's take.
