For those unhappy with the added difficulty of making the playoffs, look at it this way: the regular season means more now.
Completely agree. Although I expect Bettman will get to 28 or 32 teams post haste.
The unfairness of it is mitigated somewhat by the positives of the move. Vancouver should be in our conference/division, and should have been a long time ago. Dallas should not. Colorado should. Matchups should be time-zone friendly and they finally are.
We should also see every team every year, and that's finally being fixed. Lots to like here.
