I’m probably being a broken record with this, but seriously, now that we know what seems to be getting close to the final result for the 4 Divisions alignment, wouldn’t a 3-Conference structure with this scheduling matrix truly have been better? And as for the 84 games, hell there for a short while it seemed that they were going to consider an extra wildcard play-in round, so 84 games doesn’t seem to be a big stretch.
3 Conferences (only Minnesota gets screwed) alignment and scheduling matrix, 6 Divisions, 30 teams, 84 games
6 x 4
4 x 5
2 x 20
1st two Rounds are Conference Playoffs, within each 10 team/2-Division Conference, with only 1 crossover matchup in both Rounds. The 3rd Round is a Conference Elimination Round in which one of the 3 Conferences is eliminated.
And if you ask about expansion, I'll reply... What about Quebec City with this planned 4 Division alignment? Good luck getting Detroit and Columbus back in the West.
