The NHL governors have approved a new four-conference format. The four conferences will be:
Conference A: Anaheim, Calgary, Colorado, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose, Vancouver
Conference B: Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Minnesota, Nashville, St. Louis, Winnipeg
Conference C: Boston, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Toronto
Conference D: Carolina, New Jersey, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington
The playoffs would see 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3 in each conference, and then I'm guessing they'll re-seed for subsequent rounds.
This realignment requires NHLPA approval before it can be officially implemented. I'm okay with it, what about you guys?
