Interests
One thing that I've been paying a bit of attention to lately is the current National Hockey League Expansion process, which involves only 2 cities...those being Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, and Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

The league is currently, as of August 24, 2015, or today, in the 3rd and, presumably, final stage in the process with both cities.

Both cities are in the process of building new arenas for their respective proposed teams. The one in Vegas is the MGM - AEG Arena, a facility that would have a capacity of 17,500 people for hockey games, while the Videotron Centre(Centre Videotron in French), in Quebec City, would seat 18,259.

A team name for Las Vegas is unknown at present, while the clear choice for Quebec would be to use the Nordiques name once again, as it had been until 1995, when the original franchise moved to Colorado.

Should both proposals be accepted, the NHL would then have 32 teams in the 2017-18 season.

This would likely necessitate a divisional re-alignment for the league.

My ideas for league re-alignment would take into consideration that there would be 8 teams in Canada, and 24 in the U.S. I would want each division to contain an equal number of Canadian and U.S. teams in each division.

When discussing each division number, I go east to west.

The 2 options I've thought of for a team re-distribution are below...

4-DIVISION ALIGNMENT

Eastern Conference

Division 1

Quebec Nordiques
Montreal Canadiens
Boston Bruins
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
New Jersey Devils
Philadelphia Flyers
Washington Capitals

Division 2

Ottawa Senators
Toronto Maple Leafs
Carolina Hurricanes
Florida Panthers
Buffalo Sabres
Pittsburgh Penguins
Tampa Bay Lightning
Columbus Blue Jackets

Western Conference

Division 3

Winnipeg Jets
Edmonton Oilers
Detroit Red Wings
Nashville Predators
Chicago Blackhawks
St. Louis Blues
Minnesota Wild
Dallas Stars

Division 4

Calgary Flames
Vancouver Canucks
Colorado Avalanche
Arizona Coyotes
Las Vegas
Anaheim Ducks
Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks

In this format, to make the playoffs, I'd qualify teams based on division, where you'd need to finish in the Top 4 within to make the playoffs. No wild-cards. The 1st Round would return to the Division Semi-Final format used up to 1992-93, with Round 2 being the Division Final round. The matchups would be 1V4 and 2V3 in the DSF round.

8-DIVISION ALIGNMENT

Eastern Conference

Division 1

Quebec Nordiques
Boston Bruins
New York Islanders
New York Rangers

Division 2

Montreal Canadiens
New Jersey Devils
Philadelphia Flyers
Washington Capitals

Division 3

Ottawa Senators
Carolina Hurricanes
Florida Panthers
Buffalo Sabres

Division 4

Toronto Maple Leafs
Pittsburgh Penguins
Tampa Bay Lightning
Columbus Blue Jackets

Western Conference

Division 5

Winnipeg Jets
Detroit Red Wings
Nashville Predators
Chicago Blackhawks

Division 6

Edmonton Oilers
St. Louis Blues
Minnesota Wild
Dallas Stars

Division 7

Calgary Flames
Colorado Avalanche
Arizona Coyotes
Las Vegas

Division 8

Vancouver Canucks
Anaheim Ducks
Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks

In this format, to make the playoffs, you must finish in 1st or 2nd place in your division. There are no divisional crossovers. The 1st round is the Division Final round, with Round 2 being the Conf. Semi Final round. In the CSF round, the team with the best reg. season point total plays the one with the 4th best, and the 2nd and 3rd teams play in the other.

To accommodate the 8-division format, in order to cut down on travel lag and costs, I'd END all play between each conference in the regular season, meaning the Canucks would not play the Canadiens in the reg. season anymore.

To help keep the TOR-DET rivalry alive as best possible, I would have Detroit and Columbus switch conferences each season, meaning the Leafs and Wings would play each other in the reg. season every other year.

I'd also suggest that the rosters for every team in the NHL be re-distributed as well, to provide for proper roster balance through the whole league. Each team would have a player that would be as good as the others in their respective roster positions league-wide. It would mean that the playoff races post-trade deadline would be as even as possible.

It would help to address an issue that the teams in Canada can't make any decent playoff runs that are seen as deliberate. Most of the playoff runs that Canadian teams have made since 1994 have probably been seen as accidents that weren't supposed to exist.

Any thoughts on the above?
