NW Division > no hockey, so that's why we are here. But it would be best to be in the central. The 4 divisions make the most sense.
The biggest thing they need to do is give every team a home-and-home against every other team. That will take up 58 games of the schedule right there, leaving 22 games. Add another home-and-home against division teams, and that's another 8 games, leaving 14 games, which you can scatter throughout the conference.
