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.


It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

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 meant without teams swapping cities.

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

Portland Panthers sounds kinda cool.  

 

I still prefer the Saskatoon Panthers, though.  


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

Highly doubt if the Panthers move they keep the Panthers name. 

 

Same goes with any team aka Coyotes IF they ever move...

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.

 Most people are visual.  Once the NHL comes out with the old flow chart with colorful arrows, we'll all get it. :ok:

This league is turning into an absolute joke, they can't even support 30 franchises and are now trying to go for 32? It's so stupid just fold a few teams and get something around 20 - 24 teams.
