I can understand their frustration in trying to find a name - but Metropolitan? Really?

I would have gone the simple route. Call the Conferences Campbell and Wales and then you wouldn't need stupid names.

WALES CONFERENCE:

Atlantic: NYI, NYR, NJ, PHI, PIT, CBJ, WAS, CAR (you know...cities around the Atlantic?)

Eastern: TOR, DET, OTT, MON, BOS, BUF, TB, FLA (cities up and down the Eastern timezone.)


I can't wait to see Pittsburgh raise the Metropolitan Division Banner!!

Basically, it's the new SouthEast division.
(well to be fair, Minnesota could challenge).

The Metropolitan Division is poor conceptually since it plays favorites for those lame Atlantic Seaboard teams and it sounds like an Inner City beer league.

Those two Florida teams shouldn't be in the same division as the Leafs, Detroit, Montreal, etc. in the first place. It makes more sense to have Columbus in the division. They wouldn't want to break up any of the New York area teams or Philly and the Pens, so either Washington or Carolina would have had to be added to our division to replace the second Florida team. Of those, Washington makes the most sense but this is Gary Bettman's NHL so why should anything make sense?

I agree that the names should provide a nod to hockey's history but, unfortunately, this is Bettman's NHL and names like Patrick, Smythe, Prince of Wales, etc. mean nothing to most Americans.

Don't know if it has been mentioned, but does the word "metro" bring memories of metrosexual to anybody's mind?

Very happy about those detroit rivalrys. About time. Missing Wendel.

Basically just the Norris, Smythe, Patrick and Adams, except Leafs and Wings moved to the Adams and they added some crappy teams to each division.

Keep the West division names. They should have left the Atlantic as the Atlantic and made our division the East.

The Metropolitan division is obviously named after Glen Metropolit. Who can't remember that big time name?

I thought Gretzky would get a division named after him first, but glad to see Glen Metropolit getting his due.

I don't like the fact that you play more against non font teams than same conf non division teams since those are the ones you'll be fighting for a wild card

Playoff race is gonna be tough this year
The weak metropolitan division is gonna have 3 guaranteed spots
