I like the alignment. Fixes a lot of the travel issues.

No word I imagine about plans regarding playoff formats? I'm presuming that given how much divisional formats were discussed in connection to the new four division format, that that is in the plans.

So the Jets will basically be in the old Norris division, with a couple of new faces added. I like it! Living in Toronto now, this will mean that I get a chance to see the Jets more often.

is the popular theory that WPG will be in the "central" division and not in the "West" division?

Yeah you play every team outside of your conference twice. Apparently every western team approved as well.

And I also agree that it could build rivalries.

We will likely be in the Central division with Minnesota, Chicago, St. Louis, Dallas, Nashville and Detroit.

I live in Toronto too and it would mean we'd see the Jets half as often, I think. Once instead of twice.

This will be interesting. Can't say I am overly receptive to the new playoff format as I enjoy the current format, but i'm excited to see how it all works out.

Interesting. Initially I wasn't super on board with the 4 conference idea, but I guess we'll see how it works. Seems like it'll make things more equitable in terms of travel and schedule.

Yeah, brain-f*rt on my part. Saw an earlier alignment proposal that stuck in my head.

Here's the alignment, according to USA Today : http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hocke...ent/51663386/1

East 1: New York Rangers, New York Islanders, New Jersey, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Carolina and Washington
East II: Florida, Tampa, Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Ottawa and Boston.
Central: Columbus, Detroit, Winnipeg, Nashville, Dallas, Minnesota, St. Louis and Chicago
West: Phoenix, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Vancouver, Colorado, Edmonton and Calgary

Sixteen teams will still make the playoffs, and the first two rounds of the playoffs will be within the conference.

Detroit and Chicago in the division, that works for me. Will be a real battle for the Jets to make the playoffs though.

I think it means we'll have 6 out of 41 home games (and road games) against Canadian teams (~15%). The other Canadian teams will be playing Canadian rivals about 10 times at home and 10 times on the road (~25% of the time). So we're going to be the one team that no one else in Canada, east or west, knows much about or has a rivalry with. Not that that necessarily matters, but it could hurt attempts to expand the fanbase into Saskatchewan or Newfoundland & Labrador, for example.

Just wanted to stop by and say that I(and most other Wild fans, for that matter) are pretty pumped that we're going to be in the same conference as you guys. We're pretty close geographically, so hopefully some sense of a rivalry can develop. Congrats on the team and good luck for the rest of the year!

Another Wild fan here come to say hi to you guys. I am psyched to be in a division with you guys. I live in Fargo-Moorhead so it will be cool to try to go see Jets-Wild games in both buildings in the future
