How stupid is it to put teams from Florida with teams from Canada just to preserve 1 so called rivalry? Philly and Pitt aren't even in the same division in other sports and it works for them. Just like how everyone except the NBA keeps the NY teams separated.

NBC can go screw as they're already on the hook for 9 more years so the NHL can do whatever it wants.

Just for TV NHL(as of now):
CBC division - Mon, Tor, Van, Win, Cal, Edm, Ott
NBC division - Chi, Det, NYR, Phil, Bos, Pit, Wash, Buf
NBCSN division - SJ, St.L TB, LA, Min, Dal. Ana, Nash
OTA division - Fla, NYI, Phx, Col, Col, Car, NJ
If anything, I would love to see the NFL and MLB go to an East-West format instead of the American-National. However, it was done based on the merging of two leagues and they stuck with it. For a LONG time the American and National Leagues were completely separate, just came together for the World Series. Everyone knows about the AFL-NFL.

Here is what I would love to see in the NFL. Even set up a computer game like this once, although I know it would never happen in real life.

Eastern Conference
Northeast
Patriots
Eagles
Giants
Jets

Atlantic
Redskins
Ravens
Panthers
Titans

Great Lakes
Steelers
Lions
Bills
Browns

Southeast
Dolphins
Bucs
Jags
Falcons

Western Conference
Norris
Packers
Bears
Rams
Vikings

Central
Bengals
Saints
Chiefs
Colts

Midwest
Broncos
Cardinals
Cowboys
Texans

Pacific
Seahawks
Niners
Raiders
Chargers


I know, I know, people don't want to ruin current rivalries. I love hating the cowboys and skins. Jets fans love hating the dolphins and bills. However, new rivalries will form real fast.
