MugzyBrown: The regular season is a waste of time, so why not just play everybody home and away, take the top 24 teams into the playoffs.  Top 8 get a first round bye, first round is best of 3 for teams 9-24.


Why play hockey at all? Playoff seeding should be done through facebook likes.

Don't worry, the more sensible the plan, the more likely the NHLPA is to reject it.

WhiskeySticks: tnpir: Then contract Florida and Columbus. Problem solved (except for the Panther and Blue Jacket fans in this thread who will now be calling for my summary execution....).

Alternatively, add a team in Seattle or Portland and one more in Canada somewhere.

I'd be ok with two less teams...then again a team name like the Portland Hipsters does have a nice ring to it.

Just let the Original Dicks reunite in their little circlejerk and abolish the rest of the franchises.

GAT_00: What a surprise, the loser is pretty clearly Nashville.  Our rivals are the Red Wings.  Any Predators fan will tell you our first and biggest rivals are the Red Wings.  It's something they cultivated from the start, and several playoff series solidified.  But hey, fark over Tennessee, the fanbase is central to the state, so the NHL can pretend we don't exist.


Poor Preds and their whopping 14 years of history :'(

Back when the conferences and divisions were named after people, not regions, it did not matter that the league flunked geography.

I live in Tennessee and as far as I'm concerned, the Preds don't exist. They pretty much copied the Wings style of play. If ya can't beat 'em, clone 'em.

Only thing I'd like to see differently is one of the teams from Florida in with the Pens.  We typically have good luck against them.  However, I'm sure the smart folks in charge of the NHL will deal with a realignment plan in a smart way.
