Really seems like they are trying to have their cake and eat it too with the schedule. If you want to build the rivalries within the division, then something has to give. Cut down to 1 game against the other conference, alternate home and away each year. So what, you don't get Crosby or Stamkos every year in your building each year. It is not like 1985 when the only way to see Gretzky was when he was playing your local team. With Center-Ice and NBC and NBCS, it is very easy to see all the teams.
So, based on that I guess the east will play 28 games against the west. 24 games against the other division and 30 games within the division? so 4 or 5 times against each team? That would be terrible.
