One technical clarification for the types who will understand -

This part unique to the west:
(Exception: one team from each division plays one less game inside Division and one more game inside Conference outside Division)

is due to the math of having a 5x5 and 1x4 (29 games) not being able to work out with an odd number of teams. (try it if you don't believe)

This means there's a chance the Jets get an extra game against the Pacific, perhaps VAN/EDM/CGY. Not sure if they plan on rotating every team over each 7 years, would be nice if they chose the Jets as the exception team for another Canadian matchup but I'm sure they will rotate it.
