Poll: ESPN Proposed NHL Realignment with Seattle

Postby WingFanInAA » Mon Jan 08, 2018 9:34 am

This was proposed by an ESPN NHL writer:

http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/21995154/nhl-realigning-divisions-based-seattle-expansion-team-norris-smythe-patrick-adams

The full divisions are in the article, but the new "Norris" would be:

Arizona
Colorado
Winnipeg
Minnesota
Chicago
Detroit
St. Louis
Dallas

I do like going back to the division names, much better than the Metrosexual division....

As much as I thought I'd like the East, I think I'd rather be in the new Norris. Those road central time zone starts are generally ideal times for me to catch games live on TV. Rejuvenating rivalries with Chicago, St. Louis & Dallas would be great as well.

I kicked this around a bit...I like the start times in the East and playing Toronto. But I really miss playing St. Louis and Chicago. I could go with this if the Wings got more than a home and home series with the Leafs.

Works for me. I get the Wings in Winnipeg more often.

Wasn’t Columbus supposed to be the team to get the travel shaft next though?

I like the new divisions proposal with the naming, etc. but not too fond about Red Wings going back to the West. I would say move Detroit to the Patrick Division and move Nashville to the Norris Division. That would make more sense geographically, imo.

Until the Wings get better - it doesn't matter which division they are in - they are bottom feeders - but for the the above topic - Bettman blows!!

Not just because I am in SoCal but I just liked the Wings rivalry games in the west. Blues, Hawks, Ducks, Alberta, games in the garage. etc.

Espn being espn. Moving a central time team to the east to shift an eastern team to the west makes zero sense.

I have nothing against expansion. Somebody commented in another thread not too long ago that the talent is dilluted because of so many teams. The talent pool has grown at a much greater rate than the number of teams in the league has. If time travel were possible, I would bet money on today's AHL teams against NHL teams from when the league only had 18 teams.
But I voted Bettman sucks because he does.
