Used to love the format, but with Detroit and Columbus heading to the East, it got complicated for me to express.

Before that, I believed that it needed some modifications, which I believe that the Quebec Nordiques and the Hartford Whalers should had return, just like the Winnipeg Jets did after replacing the Atlanta Thrashers after the 2010-11 season, with some game-scheduling boost. Here was the following:

1. Eastern Conference:
1.1. Patrick Division:
1.1.1. Atlantic Section:

New Jersey
N.Y. Islanders
N.Y. Rangers
Philadelphia

1.1.2. Southeast Section:

Carolina
Florida
Tampa Bay
Washington

1.2. Adams Division:
1.2.1. Northeast Section:

Boston
Buffalo
Hartford (return)
Pittsburgh

1.2.2. Mideast Section:

Montreal
Ottawa
Quebec (return)
Toronto

2 Western Conference:
2.1. Norris Division:
2.1.1. Central Section:

Chicago
Columbus
Detroit
St. Louis

2.1.2. Midwest Section:

Dallas
Minnesota
Nashville
Winnipeg

2.2. Smythe Division:
2.2.1. Northwest Section:

Calgary
Colorado
Edmonton
Vancouver

2.2.2. Pacific Section:

Anaheim
Los Angeles
Phoenix
San Jose

Schedule Format V-1.0 (84 total games):

Conference play; Division play; Intra-Section play: Each team will play four times two home, two away for a total of 12 Intra-Division Intra-Section games (3 * 4 = 12).
Conference play; Division play; Out-of-Section play: Each team will play all four teams four times two home, two away for a total of 16 Intra-Division Out-of-Section games (4 * 4 = 16).
Conference play; Out-of-Division play: Each team will play all eight teams three times for a total of 24 Out-of-Division games (8 * 3 =24).
Out-of-Conference play: Each team will play all 16 teams twice one home, one away for a total of 32 Out-of-Conference games (16 * 2 =32).

Schedule Format V-2.0 (82 total games):

Conference play; Division play; Intra-Section play: Each team will play six times three home, three away for a total of 18 Intra-Division Intra-Section games (3 * 6 = 18).
Conference play; Division play; Out-of-Section play: Each team will play all four teams four times two home, two away for a total of 16 Intra-Division Out-of-Section games (4 * 4 = 16).
Conference play; Out-of-Division play: Each team will play all eight teams twice one home, one away for a total of 16 Out-of-Division games (8 * 2 = 16).
Out-of-Conference play: Each team will play all 16 teams twice one home, one away for a total of 32 Out-of-Conference games (16 * 2 = 32).

But now here's the same format, but with Detroit and Columbus in the East:

1. Eastern Conference:
1.1. Patrick Division:
1.1.1. Atlantic Section:

New Jersey
N.Y. Islanders
N.Y. Rangers
Philadelphia

1.1.2. Southeast Section:

Carolina
Florida
Tampa Bay
Washington

1.2. Adams Division:
1.2.1. Northeast Section:

Boston
Buffalo
Montreal
Ottawa

1.2.2. Mideast Section:

Columbus
Detroit
Pittsburgh
Toronto

2 Western Conference:
2.1. Norris Division:
2.1.1. Central Section:

Chicago
expansion?
expansion?
St. Louis

2.1.2. Midwest Section:

Dallas
Minnesota
Nashville
Winnipeg

2.2. Smythe Division:
2.2.1. Northwest Section:

Calgary
Colorado
Edmonton
Vancouver

2.2.2. Pacific Section:

Anaheim
Los Angeles
Phoenix
San Jose

Hopefully there will be two new expansions for the Western Conference in the future. Only time will tell.
