Tag Archives: Dallas Stars

Some of you know that I am a huge hockey fan. I love watching hockey; it does not matter if it is the local kids playing in an afterschool league, Colorado College, or the Dallas Stars. I love watching. I love the ice, the chess match between the coaches, the saves by the goalies, the passing, the power plays, the fighting. It all started when the then Minnesota Stars moved to Dallas in 1993.

When True North Sports and Entertainment announced that it purchased the Atlanta Thrashers and planned to move the team to Winnipeg I thought, how cool, now the city of Winnipeg gets to experience the same excitement that the DFW Area felt back in 1993.

As a result of the return of the Winnipeg Jets, The Board of Governors meeting in December will discuss the mess of the conferences, divisions, time zones, scheduling, and realignment. Commissioner Bettman has said that there is going to be realignment but how drastic is anyone’s guess. “All those clubs need an opportunity to be heard,” Bettman said. “That’s a process we’ll go through the first half of next season, looking at the issues that clubs want to raise, looking at various possibilities, and trying to figure out what will make the most sense moving forward.” As it stands now, the divisions and conferences will stand for the 2011/2012 season. I thought I would take a stab at realignment for the NHL. Below is what I came up with. It is more regional and the only two difficulties are Nashville in the Southeast, and Western Central Division teams having to travel so much.

Western Pacific: Vancouver, San Jose, Anaheim, Los Angeles, Edmonton
Western Central: Calgary, Dallas, St. Louis, Colorado, Phoenix
Western North: Winnipeg, Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, Minnesota
Eastern Southeast: Tampa Bay, Carolina, Florida, Washington, Nashville
Eastern Northeast: Montréal, Toronto, Ottawa, Buffalo, New York Islanders
Eastern Atlantic: New York Rangers, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburg, New Jersey.

What do you think; give me your suggestions?
