I couldn't agree more with you Orr.
To me, this the NHL is like US Congress.
The Red Wings were the tee baggers.
This system is terrible.
1) Thanks for killing New York and Boston.
-So it makes sense for Boston to be with Detroit and Florida, but not New York their closest opponent?
-No other sport has NY and BOS in separate divisions EXCEPT the NHL which now will further this rivalry...good enough to be on "Rivalry night".
2) Thanks for ruining New York and the original six.
-So now the Rangers have no historical heritage with any original six.
3) Oh and don't forget Chicago too.
-Also no original six.
4) Western Conference....who cares.
-Will anybody in the east CARE about better WC starting times without Detroit?
This is just STUPID STUPID STUPID.
Obviously the Wild, Canucks, Red Wings, and Blue Jackets, Stars, among others formed a tea party segment of the NHL, unwilling to compromise and making it totally impractical to do a simple quick revision. Great.
