Should the NHL split operations between East and West?

I thought they did that already. The western office just never bothered showing up to work.

My point that I was making was that there have been outdoor games in Canada something the the OP seemed to t be unaware of. He said you can't hold outdoor games in Canada which is simply not true. I was unaware of an outdoor game in Vegas who played in it?
And I'm not ungrateful I realize it inspired the winter classic but it seems most people dont even remember it existed. Even Calgary decided to call theirs the heritage classic last year come up with something original there guys.

Do you notice how most of the teams on the west coast are in california or phoenix? How do you think an outdoor game would go in California or phoenix? The only realists team on the west coast that could host an outdoor game that haven't is vancouver.
Vancouver should.

make it the 4:00 game on a saturday. Works for most people

Even 5 isn't so bad, Staying up to 11 on a saturday is not at all unreasonable.

The NHL seems to think that Canada shouldn't get any more.

I think they should just have 2. The big winter classic on new years which features american teams and concentrates on rivalries.

A quieter on in Feb as hockey day in canada which features only canadian teams.

I'm not sure why you think this is a good idea at all, let alone necessary.

You're not the only one. Seems like a great way to have even more inconsistencies in the rulings.

Western Conference deals with Western issues.
You just don't get it, do you. You're so crazy-glued inside that East-West box that even when it's pointed out to you that there is no east/west divide, nothing even close to a half and half split, you still talk about "east" and "west". If we're talking about two equal halves, then there is No East-West.

And by the way, Nashville is just one of 6 CTZ teams that is part of the two eastern time zones,... MT and PT are the two western parts. And Time Zones are important as a divider, so 2 in the fictious "west", and 2 in the 73% east.

I said there were about 27% western teams. But that doesn't make for a very evenly split East-West league, does it.

I wouldn't be opposed though, if we could add 2 expansion teams and divide the divisions into 4x4 rather than 5x3
Yes because what the NHL really needs, if nothing else, is more teams.

I'm also not sure why anybody thinks this idea resembles European soccer, where (aside from relegation) each country has a model that's pretty similar to ice hockey: Amateur leagues/lower pro leagues/top-flight, and major junior/AHL/NHL.
