Nor does anyone seem to see that were not playing anyone any more than they usually would. I've seen Washington fans all excited about playing the Penguins more. Old alignment - 4 times. New alignment - 4 times. Maths escape the HFboards.

Anyone else want NYR, NYI, PHI, NJD, PIT, and WAS to declare mutiny and restart the Patrick Division?
Well, that scenario we don't like is the only scenario in which there's more than 1 non-divisional matchup. I'd say going from a setup where you could have 0 divisional matchups to a setup were you usually will have 3 or 4, and rarely 2 as a minimum, is a big change in the chance you'll meet a rival in the playoffs.
