What if they kept the named divisions?
I was bored today and I started making re-alignment if they kept the wonderful named conferences; Patrick, Adams, Smythe, Norris
Here's what I came up with:
NJ, NYI, NYR, PHILLY, PITT, CBJ, WASH, CAROLINA
BOS, Buff, Mon, Ott, QC, Tor2, FLA, TB
Cal, Edm, LA, SJ, Van, PHX/Port (Sorry Yotes fans, I'm losing faith), Ana, Col
Chi, Det, TML, Minn, Dal, Win, Nash, STL
Now, in addition to posting a re-alignment idea, I want to start a discussion. All of the divisions had those qualities that made them who they were. If your current team wasn't in this, what division would they fit best in, play wise not geography. And if your team WAS in these divisions, please describe what they were like before geographic re-alignment.
All I see is the hilarious reboot of the NHL realignment strategy that had Florida and Tampa Bay leapfrogging teams on the Eastern seaboard to play against the Canadian teams.
I don't really care if they bring them back or not, but I think there's no chance it happens.
You can bet the Leafs and the Wings would never want to be in the Norris this time around.
I'd love to see the return of the Chuck Norris division but it isn't happening.
Realignment would require new divisions. What do you name the new divisions? If you're the Caps or Flyers, how would you feel playing in the Lemieux division?
