I understand the re-alignment of the league but why would the NHL make a move like that. You'd figure that the great rivalries like MTL-BOS are where the NHL cash in. Now theyve essentially eliminated that whole rivaly.

I'm good with only playing them 4 times. Boston's regular season record against Montreal is not great.

There is nothing better in hockey than beating the Canadians.

4 games against the division is fine. Rivalries are made in the playoffs, not the regular season.

Red Sox and Yankees play 18 times a year. Some people still look forward to the old time rivalries. 4 games is just not enough.

Screw the west, lets play them all once with home rotation annually.

The Bruins should just go on a rotation of playing the Leafs, Habs, Rangers, Flyers, Canucks, Blackwhawks, and Pens. Any other game just isn't on the same level as these games.

Put me in the camp that the new divisions/schedule suck, hate Detroit in the east and hate their style period, only seeing the Bruins play Montreal four times a year is a joke. I grew up on the Adams division hate and it will be an adjustment watching this stuff...

I thought things were great at 8 divisional games, and was upset they dropped it to 6. Now we're going to 4? Greeeeeat.

Thank God we get to see the Calgary Flames play in Boston though

Yea, I'm not too pleased. Gotta play the Leafs/Habs at least 6 times a year. It's a real shame only playing them 4 times. If there are two teams we play 5 times from our division each year, the Habs should be one of them every damn year, and if not the Leafs, at least the Sens or Sabres. Can't believe we're playing Florida 5 times. Ugh.

We should play everyone in the West once. There are going to be so many snoozers this year I'm willing to bet.

Guess I'm part of the minority but this suits me just fine. I really didn't enjoy it last year playing in our conference only. I like to get a look at all the teams in the league and playing the same old rivals so much got boring for me. I'd rather see the teams in the west and could care less if we didn't play the Habs at all. I'm all Habbed out.

Fans that only saw other teams every other year beg to differ.

I don't mind it... I like the whole NHL. It's a shame it took like 7 years to get Jumbo Joe back on Garden Ice

I do believe rivalries are made in the playoffs and it's not like Boston and Montreal will fizzle because of 1-2 missing monday night tilts.

Whattaya talking about ????? Joe played in Boston less than 6 weeks after the trade to San Jose. Of course he only last a little over 5 minutes before getting tossed but still......

I for one will be going to much less games this year. The majority of wc games are terribly boring,

NHL is trying to be the NBA here.. marketing individual players instead of teams and rivalries.
