I had predicted Babcock signing with the Leafs 8 months before it happened, and once it did, I said the Leafs would be in the SCF by 2021.
I still stand by that prediction.

Jagr signs with the Flames. Great player at a great price.
Much needed help @ RW until Foo gets better, and will help the young talent on that team.

Heck, you played one season in 2005.

Draft was Monday night, so I doubt you can come on board, but I'll let Chris know...

I know no onw is talking about expansion...which probably wont happen again til 2020...once they see if teams relocate...mostly Phoenix & Carolina. However, if they decide to go Quebec City, alignment is pretty simple with Quebec...especially if the league go to the 4 team divisions, like it is strongly thought to happen.

Eastern Conf.

*East*
Boston
NY Rangers
NY Islanders
NJ Devils

*North*
Montreal
Ottawa
Quebec
Toronto

*West*
Pittsburgh
Buffalo
Columbus
Philadelphia

*South*
Washington
Carolina
Tampa
Florida

Western Conf.

*East*
Detroit
Chicago
Minneapolis
Winnipeg

*South*
St. Louis
Nashville
Dallas
Colorado

*North*
Vancouver
Edmonton
Calgary
San Jose

*West*
LA Kings
LA Ducks
Vegas
Arizona

Play 24 teams from six other divisions twice =48. Play "Neighboring Division" (ex.EC EastvsNorth)4 times = 16. Play division opponents 6 times = 18. Season Total = still 82 game season with more regional match ups & rivaries.

Playoffs remain for the most part the same, except now you have Four divisions winners plus next Four best records in each conference....seeding by point totals obviously.

Like to see if Phoenix & Carolina decide to relocate...they relocation one to Seattle or Portland and the other Saskatoon Saskatchewan, which has a population of approx. 600,000. I know there is some talk about Kansas City & Houston. If any of these 5 cities are picked for relocation...it will definitely change alignment.

And we have protests. And wether I like it or not (and it doesn't matter what I think), no kneeling, no sitting, no disrespect to national symbols.

No way Detroit ever goes back to the Western conference.

Only if Quebec awarded the 32nd team...they may not have much of a choice. Seattle looks to be the favorite relocation team...primarily from the Phoenix Coyotes, which have been the rumor for a number of years now.

However, if Seattle become the next expansion team...I, like you, don't see Detroit moving back to the West. Just swap Buffalo with Detroit & the Sabres move to where I have Quebec. Again, if any of the six cities mention for either expansion or relocation is awarded a franchise, realignment become fluid. Above suggestion is only if Quebec becomes the expansion selection for the League's 32nd team.

I have to say, there was a few teams wanted to be in the Eastern Conf. because of travel expense...Nashville & Columbus being the other two. However, in this scenario of Quebec being the 32nd team...I think Detroit would be a little more accepting being in the West, compared to before, given the scheduling format I'm suggesting, creating better regional matchups, saving travel expense, and creating better regional rivaries.

I'm thinking Québec gets an Eastern relocated team, either Carolina or Florida, I believe the Islanders will stay on Long Island, and Seattle will be the next expansion team, because their owner will be able to afford it more than Québecor, especially with the current exchange.

Phoenix will stay because the NHL wants them there.

That is a very good point I purposely neglect to mention, concerning the Canadian dollar fall against the American dollar(currency exchange), simply because the majority of owners & even players, state their preference for Quebec to be awarded a franchise over all other sites, be it expansion or relocation...and at one time, heavy in the running for the 31st franchise, that eventually went to Las Vegas. The reason you stated, ownership capital being an issue, why Quebec was passed over. However, that also was the reason the League only expanded by one...an effort to give the investment group from Quebec, more time to solidify more investors & finances.

The feeling seem to be, it will be much easier for an owner to move a team to the northwest, primarily Seattle, in a relocation bid, because the infrastructure is already in place, compared to Quebec. So, they can move a financial ailing team now to Seattle, and save expansion primarily for Quebec. It's Quebec opportunity to loose, basically.

Quebec only gets back into the NHL as a relocation savior a la Winnipeg. This has been known for a couple years now.

The NHL had full chance to go there when they awarded Vegas an expansion team and specifically chose not to because they don't want to stick an expansion team in a small city in Eastern Canada that's already hockey-saturated. There's no potential for growth in the market, especially with gate receipts becoming more and more meaningless and national TV contracts being where money is made. Remember the NHL had the option to add two teams this time around.

Once the arena referendum in Seattle is a done deal (6 months) and that ownership group coalesces around Bruckheimer or whomever the majority partner will be, you're going to see them apply for and be granted the 32nd franchise starting play around 2019 or 2020.

If QC gets a team again it's only going to be at the expense of Arizona, Calgary, Carolina, or Florida. QC basically has a brand new arena and ownership group ready to go, it's just all of the other factors involved with the market that make them a "break glass in case of emergency" option.

Two of these are opinion pieces, one is a player poll. I'm not sure what you're trying to show me?

Nearly everything has an element of being the opinion of the author...reason why you see disclosure at the end of articles, radio & tv talk shows or programing. In these two pieces, these guys seem to follow & have wealth of information on the league current status on relocation & expansion...so why discount it. You can Google search the same information or links.

The player poll goes with what I suggested that owners & players tend to prefer a team overwhelmingly in Quebec over any other location. My insertion, the owners are giving ample time & effort to Quebec, for an alternative investment group...otherwise, Seattle would have been awarded a team alongside Las Vegas. The intent was to expand by two...not one. So these links provide information, for those to judge for themselves.
