So you're suggesting that Gary Bettman is forfeiting $3.3 billion dollars, in order to save $40 million?

By God, you're right! He could have simply put seven-and-a-half teams in each conference, but chose to intentionally make it eight in 2 divisions, and seven in the others.

Seriously tho, the league had unbalanced divisions from 1974 to 1992. It doesn't mean anything.

Here's the problem: at this point you have 9 teams in the "Northeast" division (Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Boston, Buffalo, Florida, Tampa, plus Toronto2 and Quebec), and only 7 teams in the "Southeast-but-not-Florida" division. Who's the unlucky one that's pulled from all its rivals kicking and screaming?
