Realigning the NHL the Right Way

My final proposal is just a little too late. And it’s too bad, because I went all “Howard Hughes” obsessive with it and made it into more of an infographic — and the Scheduling Pods and Scheduling Quads concept was so cool… oh well.

In both phases of this two phase plan:

Chicago fans can now calm down as I’ve put the Wings back in your conference.

Wings fans, please put down the pitchforks. In phase two of the plan, your team only has to play nine road games per season in the Mountain or Pacific Time Zones… and you get to play the Leafs and the Rangers four times each during the regular season… and the Habs and Bruins twice each, rounding out the Original Six.

    I like the 32 teams with pods concept. I would add rather than using pods , do what the NFL would do have all 4 1’s playing 3 Home and away series and the same with 2 3 ,… 8. That way best teams play against best teams and worst play against worst teams. Oh and another idea, which I got from Damien Cox from the Toronto Star have the reaming 16 non play off teams play a one and done series to determine the draft selection order like an ncaa region brackets, 1 vs 16, 8 vs 9, etc
