The NHL Sees Your Conference Realignment, NCAA, and Raises You
The strong points of the move are travel and starting times for a majority of a team's road games (you can quit whining now, Detroit and Dallas), and the fact that every team will play every other team at least twice.
If you follow the link, you will see how the conferences are broken down and I'm hoping the league goes back to the naming the conferences after people of significance to the game. Until I hear otherwise I will call Conference A the Gretzky Conference, B the Howe Conference, C the Orr Conference and D the Lemieux Conference. Any takers? Any other ideas?
