      Actually, if they shorten it to Metro Division, as Fade said, it will be a decent name although Columbus, Carolina and Pittsburgh in a "Metro" division is laughable.
      If you think about it...Atlantic works better as a name with the teams in that division than it does with the current ones.

          Me too although I don't care about Dallas. Can see why Minnesotans might though.

              Will look like the Eastern Conference. All clutch & grab & trap.

              Except for the one skilled team, of course.

                After seeing how Justin Bieber treated the Black Hawk logo when he was in the Chicago locker room, the Bruins took appropriate measures before Bieber's concert at TD Garden last night.

                    Truth. This realignment is crappy. Unbalanced conferences are BS.

                      Agreed, at least in the abstract.

                      Thinking out loud: Is there any particular reason we need to have conferences in the NHL? Surely it can't be to preserve a role for a pair of trophies that no one's willing to touch! Assuming the first two rounds of the playoffs are going to be intra-division, you're basically talking about pairings for the third round. Why not just rotate those pairings? It could work like this:

                      Year 1
                      Metro vs. Central
                      Atlantic vs. Pacific

                      Year 2
                      Metro vs. Pacific
                      Atlantic vs. Central

                      Year 3
                      Metro vs. Atlantic
                      Central vs. Pacific

                      Doing it that way you'd only have a 16 team "conference" once every three years. Also, regardless of the playoff format, a somewhat regionalized schedule for the regular season could still be retained -- Metro gets extra regular season games with Atlantic, Central gets extra games with Pacific.

                      I'm still thinking this through; maybe there's a better option for reducing the imbalance. But at least from a CBJ perspective, the motivation for realignment was not having enough Eastern Time Zone match-ups during the regular season. As long as the regular season is properly structured, I gotta believe that if a team is fortunate enough to be one of the last four standing, a little extra travel in Round 3 wouldn't be a huge issue for them.

                        That's all fine and good, but the Minnesota team should be the North Stars, the division should be called the Norris, and Detroit is missing.

                                Looks like we're the only ones bothered by this.

                                In our defense, I'll note that MLB just dropped a 16/14 split, moving to 15/15. But I guess for the silent majority, this is a non-issue. Or, at least it will be until some team on the bubble decides they were wrongly excluded from the playoff field, due to the imbalance.
