I'd be surprised if they didn't go with geographical names, but it would be the right move.

Smythe, Norris, Patrick Adams - easy answer. Campbell and Wales for the conference names.

Also wouldn't mind division names like Gretzky, Lemieux, Orr, etc.
Personaly Id prefer West, Central, East, and Atlantic

or West, Central, NorthEast, Atlantic

The problem with the old school names is that many fans who they are trying to attract arent sure what division they are in and who their divison teams are if they go with the Norris-Smythe names.

Geographical reference makes more sense to most from amarketing standpoint.

Calling Detroit, Buffalo....Montreal, boston the CENTRAL makes no F sense. Call it the Atlantic or East.

The other divsion can go by NorthEast, or Atlantic.
