Realignment, because it's fun to talk about

2

I like to talk about realignment for some reason, so here's what I think the league should do, assumning that ATL to Winnipeg is a done deal: Either go to 4ea. 4 team divisions in each conference with two expansion teams to be named later, a la the NFL. I've talked about that before, so I won't go into it. While most fans don't think the league should expand, the league's greediness will eventually get the best of them. So how about a more likelier (for now), how about 2 divisons in each conference? I'll just pick names for these divisons out of the air with no connection to anything: So in the eastern conference: The Patrick Division FLA TB WASH CAR NJD NYR NYI The Adams Division BOS MON OTT BUF TOR PIT PHI DET And in the western conference: The Smythe Division EDM CAL VAN COL LA ANA SJ PHX NORRIS CHI MIN WIN DAL STL CLB NAS Travel-wise, I think you do a little less travelling, since the league like to schedule by division rather than distance, so I think you'd have some longer road trips by days since the divisions are longer, but instead of doing the north-west, then going home, then going to the pacific, you get to do them all at once. By the way, I know that's what she said. Also there will now only be two teams getting automatic play-off spots which dramatically reduces the chances of that division winner having less points than all the other teams in the other and screwing a deserving team out of a play-off spot. The more I think about it, other than the California teams getting a chance to crush the avs more often I like this layout the best. Maybe they can announce it at the next heritage classic.
