As of right now, there isn’t too much on this topic. The NHL’s board of goveners approved a plan that would see the NHL have 4 conferences instead of 6 divisions and 2 conferences. No names yet for each conference, but here are the conferences for the upcoming season.
Conference 2: PHI, PIT, NYR, NYI, NJD, WSH, CAR
Conference 3: LAK, ANA, SJS, VAN, CGY, EDM, COL, PHX
Conference 4: DET, CHI, STL, MIN, NSH, CLB, WPG, DAL
Tampa Bay and Florida are very separated from their conference.
What do you guys think of this new alignment?
