HOT FREAKIN' DAMN!  I'm doing a serious happy dance here.  Hello, O6, goodbye 10:30 starts!


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

This is great. Goodbye late nights. Sucks for my bro in WA though. No more wings. Unless he gets CI. Can't wait for road trips to Leafs and Habs games. Saving up for gas now!!!

Couple this realignment with the winter classic and Hello leafs-wings rivalry revival!

Not sure if I'm looking forward to matchups against the Leafs and Bruins with this roster.  

 

Will be fun just to see a change, though.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I like the "re-evaluation" part of this. Also, a quick agreement to this issue lays the foundation for a possible quick decision to the next big issue.

Those matchups are most of the reason I would like to see Clowe on the roster next season (although I don't think he is in Orr's class).

You probably have to go to Windsor. The train station in Detroit closed in 1988. 



I'll miss the Blackhawks rivalry, but look forward to playing the Leafs more, and certainly won't miss those late starts.

Here's what I'd do if I had my way

 

Northeast
Toronto

Montreal

Ottawa

Boston

Buffalo

New York Rangers

New York Islanders

 

Atlantic

Pittsburgh

Philadelphia

New Jersey

Flordia

Tampa Bay

Carolina

Washington

 

Midwest

Chicago

Detroit

Winnipeg

St. Louis

Columbus

Minnesota

Nashville

Dallas

 

Pacific

Phoenix

San Jose

Los Angeles

Anaheim

Colorado

Calgary

Edmonton

Vancouver



We also need to remember Phoenix may move to Quebec City so what happens then?  Do they flip Detroit back to West?  


Under my plan is IF and When Phoenix moves it will become a 15/15 confrence with Quebec City/Phoenix goign to the Northeast.

 

Putting the Devils in a different division from the Islanders and Rangers wouldn't make any sense. They all practically play in the same city. 

 

I think the idea of a team coming to Quebec City is more wishful thinking than anything else. There are much larger markets that would love an NHL franchise, like Portland and Seattle. Given all of the Candadiens' history, why would anyone in that province support anyone else but them? It'd be like putting a team in Grand Rapids. Hell, if I were the league, I'd approve of them moving to Milwaukee before Quebec. 

 

With this setup, the Red Wings will be back with their traditional, regional arch rival, the Maple Leafs. Splitting those two up back in 1999 was a mistake.

If Phoenix ends up moving don't forget that Seattle and KC are in the running for teams too.  KC nearly had the Pens a few years ago.  When they say re-evaluate in a couple years, I think that basically means, how well are the Islanders, Panthers and Devils financially and could they potentially move to a Western city.  After a couple years of the Wings playing the Rangers, Bruins, Leafs and Canadiens, the NHL would have to be nuts to send us back to the West.  I think we're in the East for good guys.  Hallelujah!
