anyone want to take a stab on the teams in the EC ? ... I'm flabbergasted
Not saying this is best, but what would happen is:
1) Swap Winnipeg with Colorado in what you have (We know this because that is what they
2) Most likely, QC, OTT, MONT, BOS, TOR, TOR2, BUFF for the "Eastern" and
NYR, ISLE, NJ, PIT, PHIL, WAS for the "Atlantic"
Which, of course, leaves out, CAR, TB, and FLA. So, since the Atlantic needs 2 teams, and there are 2 teams in Florida, I think that TB and FLA would be in the Atlantic, and CAR in the Eastern in this scenario.
Other possibility here would be:
PACIFIC: VAN, CAL, EDM, SEA, SJ, LA, ANA, COL
MIDWEST: WINN, MINN, CHI, DET, STL, DAL, CAR, NASH (Note it's Carolina rather than Columbus).
NORTHEAST: QC, MON, BOS, OTT, TOR, TOR2, BUFF, CMB
COLONIAL or ATLANTIC: NYI, NYR, NJ, PITT, PHIL, WAS, TB, FLA
Which at least leaves everything continguous...
