Realignment Talk

Why would Nashville be in the East and Detroit in the West? I think the author is just trying to bring back rivalries. Nashville is in the Central Time Zone, it sits way west of Detroit. Swap those two and then the alignments look fine.

Joke or serious? Because that would be great if so. 

Well he promised the Ilitches he would move them back to the East. I can't imagine he would disrespect that agreement just a few years later and flip them back.

If we don't learn from the mistakes of the future, we are doomed to repeat them for the first time.

I'm confused as to why they totally over think this stuff. West has one less team. Seattle make up for that. They clearly should be in the Pacific. Take the eastern most team in the Pacific now and move them to the central. Is it really that hard?

Happy Monday! I think Detroit should go to the East, but Central could work too.

Why would we " go " to the east? We are already there.

1.  Contract all the teams that weren't in the league prior to 1993. 

2.  Bring back the divisional names (I liked that idea). 

3.  Bring back 90's jerseys for each team.  Also, the home team goes back to wearing white.

Yeah but, how long is that in effect.? I would imagine its more like a friendship bracelet, not a wedding ring.

No its not. And you're right.

Atlantic= Tampa, Florida, Carolina, Washington, Philadelphia, NJ, NYR, NYI (All EDT zone)

Northeast= Boston, Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Columbus, Detroit (All EDT)

Central= Nashville, Chicago, St Louis,  Minnesota, Dallas, Colorado, Arizona (CTL & MTN zones)

Pacific= Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Seattle, San Jose, Anaheim, LA, LV  (MTN & PAC)

The better question is, how are Arizona, Florida, and Carolina still functioning as NHL franchises?  Those teams should all relocate.  

Indeed.

I'm wondering if the league wants to shift a franchise/s in order to fit a team into QC that would obviously fall into the 'Eastern Conference' (read AZ relocating).

So true.  No denying the game was more fun back then.  Generational talent from North America, new blood from Europe, and not as many teams to spread all the talent across.  Also, there was a lot more fighting and more scoring.  The game isn't as exciting now.  It doesn't help that there's so many teams in the league that no one cares about, which don't draw any fans or TV ratings.  Yeah, there's more parity, but the league is too watered down.

Back when Dragon Ball Z was popular in North America. Watch all the fighting on Cartoon Network, then continue to watch fighting at night on hockey.

Those were the days. Violence everywhere.
