So just to get this strait, if there is a wild card spot for the west that means ANY team can get that spot, either from east or west division?

I read that if there's 2 wild cart spots for the WEST, only teams from the WEST division [aka Division A & B will get the spots]. The East [Division C & D] are still gonna use the top 8 best records for playoffs.

I'm not 100% sure if its confirmed though lol

Seattle arena plan has already been put out online. It can support a NHL & NBA team by 2015-2016. So if the Coyotes franchise fails to stay, its going to Seattle.

Maybe they are just testing out Detriot & CBJ in eastern conference zone. Quebec city arena is going to happen and dont know about Toronto #2. Evenually they will be moved back possibly because of the Chicago rivalry.

The Stanley Cup Playoffs will still consist of 16 teams, eight in each conference, but it will be division-based and a wild-card system has been added.

The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, based on regular-season points and regardless of division. It will be possible, then, for one division to send five teams to the postseason while the other sends three.

The seeding of the wild-card teams within each divisional playoff will be determined on the basis of regular-season points. The division winner with the most points in the conference will be matched against the wild-card team with the fewest points; the division winner with the second-most points in the conference will play the wild-card team with the second fewest points.

The teams finishing second and third in each division will play in the first round of the playoffs. The winners of each series will play for berths in the conference championship series.

The winners of the conference championships advance to the Stanley Cup Final.

They're not going to say, "...@VanCanucks are in Division A now, which we are also sharing the same Division."

And are these the official division names? A, B, C, D?

A, B, C, D are not the official division names, they are just temporary.

Detroit has been lobbying the league for a decade to get back into an eastern time zone division.

It is strange tho that the East has 16 teams and the West has 14 when they could have moved one team from the east and had it 15/15. Perhaps they are expecting an eastern team to move west? Florida?

FLA got a stop on 1st shot on goal tonight. So that's a step in right direction. The 2nd one, however, got past Clemmensen
Hahaha, too fucking funny. I would feel so disheartened to be playing on that squad.

Geographically wise, I don't get it. Considering if anything,
NW and Pacific combined to create "Div A", with them having 4 of the 7 teams.

I must be reading way too much into this.

its not so much about geography. its about keeping divisions within time zones so more important (divisional) games are at 'primetime' 7pm for TV ratings. it's not about how far a team has to travel.

so if the schedule remains similar to 2 game vs other conference teams (1 home, 1 road), 4 games against other division in conference teams (2 home, 2 road), and the rest against divisional teams. the canucks should play about 52 games at 7pm, 14 games at 5-6pm, and 16 games at 4pm
