Maybe when Quebec gets in, they can break up Philly and Pittsburgh.

Seriously though, with Buffallo moving to the top of the league in salary, along with Burke's continuing efforts to improve Toronto, the NE is possibly the best division in the league in terms of rivalries. So yeah, break it up.
Want me to call the WAAAmbulance for you. OMG Bettman is so bad. He's only grown the game from a point where Canadian teams needed bail outs to where they are the ones now providing the bailouts.

We have a great rivalry with Boston because of our playoff matches against them not because they are in our division. Seeing them a couple games less a year isn't going to kill the rivalry.

But keep acting like it's the end of the world, it's entertaining.

Why not Columbus in the East ?

Geez the team is next door to Piitsburg, and more eastern than Detroit.

It was promised to Detroit they'd go back East.

Well, not that he didn't do anything for it, but the fact that the canadian $ went from something like .66 USD to over 1 USD also has a hell of a lot to do with it. Imo this is by far the main reason why canadian teams are much better off financially now.

It's also screwing me up though, I moved in Boston to work 3 years ago and most of my money goes back to Canada, I was getting 1.2$ for every $ I sent back. Now I get around .95$, so even with good salary increase I actually make less money in the end than before...

That's actually due to the housing bubble in the USA and other issues, which has caused the US dollar to crash against all currencies including the loonie.

Geographically, doesn't really matter in the east. All the teams are pretty close together. The Nhl will not break up a habs bruins rivalry that has heated up even more over the last year. The Nhl is stupid, not that stupid though. They will find a way to keep the habs and Bruins together.

Pretty much. NHL will do all they can to keep rivalries in the same division.

Same goes for Flyers and Pittsburgh.

Then you have prospects like Mursak, Tatar and Nyquist that are potential top 6.

And they'll probably find a sleeper in the 6-7th round haha!!

Don't count them out..


At least for as long as the have guys like Datsyuk.

I think that had more to do with the exchange rate...

As for Detroit, without Lidstrom they wouldn't be as scary. Still, Datsyuk and Zetterberg would not be fun to play against 8 games a year.

like its been said in this thread before.. I can't see that happening it would break up one of the best rivalries in sports and doubt they'd do that.. and no one needs to move out.. one division is going to have to have more teams then all the other ones so why move anyone out?
