    Which Plymouth is this? I'm assuming Mass. at this point, but there are others that have rinks enough to support the tournament.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    USA Hockey bought the rinks and moved the developmental team from Ann Arbor.

    I hated both of these teams back at this time as they were doing what my Hawks couldn't - win Cups.

    The rivalry was crazy though and this is a great writeup by Draper...

    Per ESPN, 125 years ago today, Lord Stanley donated his Cup to a hockey competition​.

    Re: NHL 2016.1 -- Anyone have a Laine on a new Auston?

    When the NHL gets to 32 teams, let's think outside tbe box.

    8 divisions of 4 teams.

    80 game schedule. Play everyone outside your division Home and Home (56 games). Play your division 8 games each (24 games)

    Top 2 teams in each division make playoffs. Play your own division in Round 1. Round 2 and beyond are seeded by points to get to the final 2 that play for the Cup.

    Sample Divisions
    Canada East: MTL, OTT, TOR, BUF
    Canada West: WPG, EDM, CAL, VAN
    Amtrak: BOS, NYI, NYR, NJD
    South: CAR, TAM, FLA, NSH
    Mid Atlantic: WAS, PHI, PIT, CLB
    West: LA, ANA, SJ, SEA(?)
    Central 1: DET, CHI, MIN, STL
    Central 2, LAS, COL, DAL, AZ

    Notes: When somebody gets relocated to Quebec, they go into Canada East and Buffalo slides somewhere which may cause a further bump.

    Going to be interesting to see if losing home ice to the Blackhawks is going to cost them come playoff time or not. They both have to get out of round 1 first.

    That's an interesting take... It'd uproot some rivalries though... Not sure I like only having one shot to see 3/4 of the leave in my building...

    You currently have one shot at 1/2 the league. In the Original 6, you played everyone 14x. Hate was good - it builds rivalries.

    Clever and appealing.

    To nitpick, I'd substitute "Southwest" for "Central 2."

    As a Blackhawks fan, I like the Central 1 group. As someone with a secondary rooting interest in the CBJ, I like the Mid-Atlantic group as well. Yes, every team could point out rivals they wish were in their grouping. But I honestly think your re-alignment plan gives everyone in the league a decent deal.

    Don't like seeing Top 2 as it rewards weaker divisions. Top 1 + 4 WC which changes the proposed playoff format as well which is fine. It should be 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, etc. anyway not this forced into creating rivalries b.s.
