I heard Brian Burke say on TSN that the Maple Leafs are totally opposed to the 4 division format with a home and home with every other team. I also believe the pwer teams in the East would side with the Leafs.
In todays Dispatch:
A strong group of Eastern Conference owners could form a bloc against a new four-division format, and against the leaguewide home-and-home schedule format that would lessen the travel disparity between the two conferences.
“They’ve got it pretty good in the East right now,” one league executive said last night. “Why would they give that up?”
It could prompt a move that would keep the league as it is today other than sending Winnipeg to the Western Conference and either Detroit or the Blue Jackets to the East.
The worst scenario for the Blue Jackets would be the Red Wings heading to the East and Winnipeg taking Detroit’s place in the Central Division.
