This is going to rock!

I was getting pretty pumped about the Eddy games, though. They have their young talent now. We will get ours over the next two years...

But, still, this makes more sense and we have seen how the Blues games are....!

I just look forward to developing, I don't know, some sort of emotion towards other teams in the league. Sounds appealing...

Blues fan here. I'm very happy you guys will be back in the same Division/Conference as us and CHI. Hope you all feel the same as well.

I don't care what the League will end up calling it, I'm calling it the Norris.

Does this imply Detroit won't be in our "conference"?

NORRIS PRIDE!

For me this is pretty cool. I get to hate some of the same cities in hockey that I already hate for Baseball and Football, namely Chicago and Detroit.

I have some questions, schedule wise.

We would play every team at least twice, no?

Once at home, once away. So we'd play every team from every other conference twice, which would take care of 22x2=44

44/82 games taken care of there

I thought we could play conference teams a total of six times, three at home, and three away. 6x7 is 42, so is it possible that they'd add four games to the season to make it even?

If there are extra games left over, it would be neat if teams were free to schedule those as they see fit. Would be interesting to see who all pairs off.

Very excited. That division, conference, or whatever will be a tough one to come out of every year. I expect a rough battle every year.

Just think of emotions that will come along with that playoff set-up. Great move.
