NHL Realignment

Recommended Posts

Boltergeist    212

Has been approved, with 4 conferences (yes, conferences).

Carolina is in the same conference with New Jersey, Philly, Pittsburgh, NY Rangers, Washington, and NY Islanders

and the other 3 conferences

* Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo, Florida and Tampa Bay

* Detroit, Columbus, Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago, Minnesota, Dallas and Winnipeg

* Los Angeles, Anaheim, Phoenix, San Jose, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Colorado

playoffs are going to revert back to the old style where the top 4 teams from each conference make the playoffs, face off in each of the first 2 rounds with the conference champs then play the Cup semis and finals.

Sh**! In the same conference as Philly, Pitt, and Washington! It's going to be very hard to make the playoffs.

It will be a 16 team playoff right?

we're not going to be winning another stanley cup any time soon

I still don't understand, for traveling purposes, why we are in that conference though. I like the Southeast Division because, before Atlanta went to Winnipeg, the match-ups made sense. Now, we're playing all the Northeast teams?

Don't watch much hockey, but seems unfair, unless they plan on expanding by two teams later. If you are in a 8 team conference you only have a 4/8 chance... but in a 7 you get a 4/7 chance... oh well, I just wouldn't want to be in the 8 team conference.
