Well this proposed realignment is better then the previous one that got rejected. They had 8 teams in the division in that one compared to 7 now. It makes sense to have the 8 team divisions in the east anyways since those teams have a lot less travel.
I like it better than the last, simply because I would rather be in a 7-team conference than an 8-team one.
Exactly, if they are going ahead with this idea of uneven. Conferences i like being in the smaller conference also i think we are. Close to being better then or are already better then cgy sj pho and LA
Hate it. The uneven conferences is a dumb idea, is gonna make for wacky scheduling and some strange playoff situations. I dunno how they're thinking of doing this proposed 'Wildcard' thing, but the way I see it it'll always be easier to make it in the 7 team conferences.
I get the whole trying to accommodate for expansion, but the three most likely expansions are Markham, Quebec City and Seattle. Assuming Phoenix moves to one of them, doesn't help with the fact that they'll still have to realign later.
Stick with 6 divisions of 5 for now, worry about expansion when the time comes.
