That's what you get for grabbing a bunch of Toronto Maple Leafs in order to make the playoffs.

I didn't care for the way that that brawl interrupted the flow of the game.

Totally watched the video first thing this morning. This is the day that an innocent 7-year-old girl learned that there is evil in the world and that Darren McCarty will stop it.


#1925123 Re-alignment

Posted by stevkrause on 26 March 2010 - 10:37 AM

**EDIT - UPDATED ON 5/20/11 to allow for Winnipeg**

We've gone over this several times, but this time I did some geographic research, travel distances, etc...

I'm in the mindset that all teams should travel equally and I would split it basically on a North East to South West type bend and then separate it back into Wales and Campbell Conferences and divisions (division names are just ideas and subjective) - Spread out original 6 teams, 3 per conference, equal West Coast teams split per conference - EVERYONE TRAVELS

**DISCLAIMER** - Below are just suggestions and NOT the guts of the post, the real thought is into the re-alignment into an even travel schedule for all teams - take the suggested conferences for what they are.

WALES CONFERENCE
ADAMS DIVISION
Edmonton
Vancouver
Calgary
San Jose
Colorado

PATRICK DIVISION
Minnesota
Toronto
New York Islanders
Buffalo
Chicago

HOWE DIVISION
Columbus
Nashville
St Louis
Detroit
Ottawa

CAMPBELL CONFERENCE
SMYTH DIVISION
New York Rangers
Philadelphia
Washington
Florida
Tampa Bay

NORRIS DIVISION
Anaheim
Los Angeles
Phoenix
Dallas
Winnipeg

ORR DIVISION
Boston
Pittsburgh
Carolina
Montreal
New Jersey

Everyone travels, all teams have ABOUT equal travel all the way around

In Division games - 5 games a team = 20 games
Out Of Division/In Conference - 3 games a team = 30 games
Opposite Conference - 2 games(home and home) = 30 games
2 flex games against opposite conference, geographic relevance/rivalry games = 2 games

82 game schedule.

I realize that some teams MAY get boned the most on travel IN division, but put it in perspective, only 10 games of these 20 against these teams will be on the road and it could be part of a west coast swing... also, all other teams in the division, essentially have to make the swing at least 5 times a season, plus the extra 2 or 3 for out of conference, so it comes very close to evening out... it still screws them less than the current schedule screws quite a FEW teams (Detroit, Chicago, Minnesota, Columbus, Nashville, etc...)

If this was last year or any year really and Osbad was in net we would have lost.

Well considering I doubt Zetterberg has the heart to fight a very physical player like Crosby I doubt we will ever know.

Your baiting game is old dude. :thumbdown:

You're right. A radio poll is great evidence of such and an excellent cross section of the majority opinion. Are you kidding me?


Considering it's Detroit's biggest radio station? I'm by no means saying it's a scientific fact, but I was just using it to show that there are some people that hate Crosby so much that they would go against Yzerman...

I gotta laugh at Carman accusing us of being jealous of Crosby and the Pens in the Penguins bashing thread. Give me the Zetterberg and the Wings over that cry baby any day!


Well as much as you people talk about Crosby it seems pretty evident...

Thank you Gordie, maybe people will actually listen to you...

I doubt it though, their jealousy is blinding them.

Jealous of what? His clutch play in the Stanley Cup finals? His sense of entitlement? His great displays of sportsmanship? Fact is, if Crosby wasn't Canadian, he'd get nary a mention as being the league's best player.

We cannot have any factual evidence in here. Blasphemy!!!
