Even in situations where a division might get a 5th team in, how big of a travesty would it be if a 5th place team got shut out of the playoffs?
How do people feel about the 'Midwest' name? There are arguably FOUR markets that wouldn't associate their city with that regional moniker (WPG, DEN, NAS, maybe DAL).
When I think of the heart of the Midwest, I think Iowa-Illinois-Indiana. Not exactly hockey heavyweights, which kind of makes the title somewhat derogatory for the name of a hockey division (not quite as bad as the 'Southeast')
I would have preferred Norris (tough beans Dallas and Nashville). Central probably would have been the best all-inclusive title. The East could have taken 'Northeast' and 'Atlantic'.
