Possible Scenarios to Re-shuffle the NHL Divisions

Posted: June 30, 2011 in Boston Bruins, Canada, Chicago, Detroit, Draft, Hockey, New York, NHL, Philadelphia, Sports, Tampa, Texas

Option 1:

Minnesota From Northwest to Pacific
Dallas from Pacific to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Option 2:

Saint Louis from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 3:

Columbus from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 4:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 5:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Dallas from Pacific to Central
Colorado from Northwest to Pacific
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Option 6:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Minnesota from Northwest to Central
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Geographically, option 5 makes the most sense.  The option that makes the most sense with the least amount of impact is Option 4.  My favorite option is Option 6… I believe that would have a good balance of geographic relocation as well as only affecting 3 teams and 3 divisions.

From what I hear, this NHL season (2011 – 2012) will be played out with Winnipeg in the Southeast division and a restructure will occur before the 2012 – 2013 season is scheduled out.
