Edmonton, Calgary, San Jose, Los Angeles, Anaheim
Vancouver, Colorado, Phoenix (hopefully to be Seattle), Winnipeg, Minnesota
No single UB-based team in a Division, no single Canadian-based team in a Division.
Doesn't much solve the issue of teams having to travel two time zones for divisional games.
Whatever is decided, I'd like to see:
-At least home and home with every other team
-divisons only spanning at most one time zone away
-no divisions with only one CDN or one US team in them
Which could only be solved by splitting up Cal and Edm or grouping Winnipeg with Eastern time Zone CDN team
