Central Division: Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Columbus, Toronto
One major sticking point in that realignment is Toronto leaving Ottawa and Montreal so it is tough to make the realignment like that. However, I am sure that Detroit would be delighted to see Toronto back as their rivalry and an additional ETZ team in their division. Even though it is a logical move. So 4 divisions, I believe, will happen rather than 6 divisions.
I believe that Nashville should belong to the south division due to their geography despite their CTZ location.
Now, in case of expansion team, let's say if speculations come true, say, 2nd team in Toronto and Seattle or Quebec City come to the fruition. We would have balanced 32 teams with 4 conferences.
I like this but I`d switch columbus with nashville, as nashville is a good rival for dallas, and dallas would goto central.
I`d also split alberta
And put toronto in the northwest
Pacific Division: Vancouver, LA, San Jose, Anaheim, Calgary
Northwest Division: Edmonton, Detroit, Winnipeg, Minnesota,Toronto
Central Division: Chicago, St. Louis,Colorado , Nashville, Dallas
