    I have taken the liberty to realign the league. Here are my conclusions.

    North East
    Boston Bruins
    Buffalo Sabres
    Montreal Canadiens
    Ottawa Senators
    Toronto Maple Leafs
    New York Islanders
    New York Rangers

    South East
    New Jersey Devils
    Philadelphia Flyers
    Pittsburgh Penguins
    Atlanta Thrashers
    Carolina Hurricanes
    Florida Panthers
    Tampa Bay Lightning
    Washington Capitals

    Central
    Chicago Blackhawks
    Columbus Blue Jackets
    Detroit Red Wings
    Nashville Predators
    St. Louis Blues
    Dallas Stars
    Minnesota Wild

    Pacific
    Anaheim Mighty Ducks
    Los Angeles Kings
    Phoenix Coyotes
    San Jose Sharks
    Colorado Avalanche
    Calgary Flames
    Edmonton Oilers
    Vancouver Canucks

    League starts this weekend. For the coyotes and Sabres GMs, please ensure that your rosters are filled out properly otherwise Puckhead and dull knife or even yourselves incarnated will make an appearance for your team. :)

    Won't this affect endorsement deals if you picked the one to win your division? Kinda cuts your chances there.

    I don't know about that alignment... The West looks ok, but we should do something more like this for the East to keep traditional rivalries. We can't have the Rangers and Islanders in different divisions than New Jersey, Philly, and Pittsburgh.

    Atlantic
    New York Islanders
    New York Rangers
    New Jersey Devils
    Philadelphia Flyers
    Pittsburgh Penguins
    Florida Panthers
    Washington Capitals

    Northeast
    Boston Bruins
    Buffalo Sabres
    Montreal Canadiens
    Ottawa Senators
    Toronto Maple Leafs
    Atlanta Thrashers
    Carolina Hurricanes
    Tampa Bay Lightning


    Central
    Chicago Blackhawks
    Columbus Blue Jackets
    Detroit Red Wings
    Nashville Predators
    St. Louis Blues
    Dallas Stars
    Minnesota Wild

    Pacific
    Anaheim Mighty Ducks
    Los Angeles Kings
    Phoenix Coyotes
    San Jose Sharks
    Colorado Avalanche
    Calgary Flames
    Edmonton Oilers
    Vancouver Canucks
     
  5. Yes and No :)
    I guess the question is did you originally sign up for this when we were still a 4 division (and now back again) league.
    Also Nick developed the endorsement structure when we were a 4 division league and I don't think the risk/reward was ever revised down for a potential 6 division league (which it should have IMO)
     
  6. I agree with Sean's tweaks in the East. I might have missed something but ...
    I believe the revised alignment is consistent with the old one with the following small moves (which I don't see an issue with)
    (i) Tampa is moved from the North East to the Atlantic Division
    (ii) Columbus and Phoenix swap divisions

    Columbus in the Pacific division? Doesn't sound very good when you look on the map.

    Dang public computers, won't lemme use my thumb drive. Looks like I have to upload tonite then :(

    As for the re-alignment, I disagree in some ways with the rivalry issue, if there is a rivalry it should be between the GM's not the fans as their isn't a rivalry factor programmed into the sim. If there was, then I would have factored into the realignment. I hate this South East bashing!!! It happens in real life as well. Can't the northern parts of north america win gracefully and not rub it in our faces. You won the war already, so grow up. :rant:

    Just because the South east is weak and the history of other teams is far greater, I say screw it and let the new HFNHL reign. Times are achanging.

    if you want your realignment, I would swap my Hurricanes with the Panthers. I don't want the face the Leafs in a five years time when they have Kessel, Epsito (sp) and Tavares on the same line. That is down right scary.

    But i still think that my realignment is the best. I don't care about the rivalries... in the end, i have the power... huahuahua... :D :yo:

    ***************************************************
    Please take my rant about the south east as a jk. :yo:

    I don't know if this sould be a closed issue where 1 person has the only say. If anything, it should be put to vote.

    I thought the point of this league was to be as realistic as possible? There's no way in hell the Rangers, Islanders, Flyers, Devils, and to an extent the Penguins, would be placed in different divisions.... especially now that the league is trying to promote their rivalies.

    Doesn't make any sense to me. :dunno:

    I'd lean towards Sean's suggestion. The rivalries are important and we should try to keep things realistic in comparison to the NHL.

    Hopefully we'll figure out the three divisions next year and it will no longer be an issue.

    The Islanders agree with Sean suggestion. You really need to have the original rivalries.

    However, we don't mind if Dion would like to include us in a conference with HFNHL Elite teams (i.e., St Loius, Columbus, Ottawa ...) This way we can raise our ticket price to $100. :jump:

    Hmm. I hope you're right, but the jury's out as yet.

    Can you move the Flames into the South-East division? That would certainly make us an 'elite' team. :D
