We may be getting Detroit in our conference

CBC Hot Stove tonight has Detroit moving over next season in realignment, with the usuals plus Tampa and Florida to make eight teams in the conference. They may not be the team they once were, but are well managed.

Some kind of wild-card is being discussed for the two 8-team divisions. I'm not sure of the outcome, though

Wish you would have linked right to Elliotte Friedman, and not Harrington's RT, but minor pet peeve.

Sorry, I normally do, but had my Buffalo media list open for in-game updates and it was easy to grab from there without the extra clicks.

Hey we don't get Pittsburgh or Philly at least, and we do get Florida and Tampa Bay.

They have to throw a bone to the conferences with 8. It's not fair to only take 4 from each. Buffalo won't be making the playoffs for the foreseeable future, I suspect.

Head to Head, probably. I'm more concerned with their overall records. Philly, Pittsburgh and Detroit is going to be a LOT harder to compete with for the division, year in and year out, than Detroit, Florida and Tampa Bay.

It's going to suck playing against Ryan Miller 6 times a year.

In the proposed format you would play division rivals 5-6 times mostly 5 you might see a couple teams 6 to make up for the extra games. You would play the rest of those teams twice.

Give me a little bit and I can come up with a better realignment plan than the "braintrust" has given us.

I'm in favor of this. I don't care what it means in terms of competition. If you aren't good enough to beat other teams then you don't deserve to be in the playoffs, nevermind that you can't predict what teams are going to be strong in 4, 5 years. Detroit's looking at being a pretty middle-of-the-road team in the mid-term future. Sure, we don't expect that to last long with their track record but you never know. From Detroit's perspective they deserve to go where they want so long as it makes sense. They've been ran as a great franchise for a couple decades now and have as much history as any US team.

In reality, that probably won't last that long. If we rebuild I'm not sure Ryan would want to stay here past his contract and there's good reason to think he'd like to play out West.

I still think that the NHL would be better off having 15 teams in the East and 15 teams in the West:



Is that so hard, guys?

And an alternative that keeps the NYC-area and Pennsylvania teams together:

Get Tampa and Florida out of there and it would look great.

I was referring to when Miller signs as an UFA in Detroit. He'll be a Sabre-killer for the rest of his career.
