Wait...is Chicago seriously the only O6 team in the West?

Yeah they're also the only one not in the eastern time zone.

Also the only team that will give the league ratings in the SCF.

This alignment is so much better than the FIRST agreed upon change before it was scrapped.

Lol. It's the same

I think kylee means the realignment that was shot down by the PA before the lockout. In which case, no, they weren't the same at all. Detroit was still in the West in the pre-lockout proposal.

Pre-lockout proposal, rejected by NHLPA...

Post-lockout proposal, accepted & implemented as of 2013-2014...

That's exactly what I meant. I'm talking when Detroit was in the central in the West. This will be much,much better.

hmmm, my bad, I thought the pre-lockout proposal had Detroit in the East, I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the comparisons :)

The playoff format is unnecessarily complicated. I was never a fan of divisional matchups being forced on us. Or divisions at all. You don't need to play a team five times to develop a rivalry.

I think they are just trying too hard to create rivalries, although the best ones are already set. I mean wednesday is now officially rivalry day how stupid is that? Players and fans already know their opponents amd rivals, no need for the NHL trying to build one. In terms of Chicago I very sure they are going to miss their old and only original 6 rivalry soon enough.

The new playoff format just sucks but I am really looking forward to the games against Montreal, Toronto, Rangers and of course Pittsburgh.

This always happens in non-lockout seasons.

What does? We didn't always play teams from the opposite conference in a regular season, something they are trying to rectify now

Yes they do, just not always at home.

I am not looking forward to these games, they are going to be a bloodbath but the others should be tight and high emotional ones.

Sorry to disagree with most, but this really isn't that complicated at all. The Metropolitan Division name is dumb as hell and I don't care for the 16 teams versus 14 teams, but there's no solid way of doing it without making it 6 divisions or adding/removing 2 teams.

The playoff format makes perfect sense with what they've got. I don't mind it one bit.

Not sure where Portland is coming from these days. Seattle yes, but Quebec is way ahead of Portland on the list and will likely have a team in the near future. I definitely approve of the 2 teams you want to move though.

I think 32 is the magic number. Wouldnt surprise me if phoenix, seattle, and portland have teams, and florida goes to quebec.

Well...We can all piss, and moan about everything, or enjoy the fact that we're in the Eastern Conference, and will play our old Original 6 rivals (excluding Chicago of course) on a regular basis.
