In the west we miss out on Stamkos, Ovechkin, Crosby, Kovalchuk, etc. These players are marquis and should be enjoyed by the league
fans entirely. You still would get four or five divisional games.
you said it yourself. "developing rivalries", and playing more games against the division will do that. Besides, look at the post I quoted. He said, "Wouldn't everyone want to see each team twice. I pointed out that I believe from a Rangers fan perspective his opinion is inacurate.
Yes, I am sure west teams would like to host the marquee players, but why give up games against your rivals for a few individual players? Secondly, if the realignment proposed last night happens, you will get Nash 3 times a year.
