Have they ever said what they're going to call these 4 new "conferences"?, or are they just sticking with "A" "B" "C" and "D"?

 

god forbid they sell sponsorship to the highest bidder...could you imagine playing for the "Pepsi Division"?

Have you heard any rumors to that effect? Would be an embarrassment.

That's the newest article I've seen on the matter... nothing serious, just sounds like suggestions and poking fun...

Actually I saw recently where they had decided on names for the divisions but they'd be unveiled at a later date (perhaps in concert with the schedule?)

I'm sure it'll just be something geographic, something like Atlantic, Central, Mid-West, and Pacific wouldn't surprise me.

Except Florida and Tampa are in what would be considered the "North". 

 

I don't think they're going to be geographically named this time around. I bet we're back to something like the Patrick Division.

They start with this. Then it's ads on the practice jerseys. Then the game helmets. And then ads on the jerseys. Money talks.

Eastern Conference should be the Brodeur Conference.

Western should be the Howe Conference

This.. Lol I think eastern and western with geographically themed division names is easiest for the broader "casual fan base" that may not know Campbell from Howe

We'll turn into the Euopean leagues, have you seen some of the lengths the ads go there!? Ads everywhere you can think of on the ice, to where you amost cant see the lines, ads all over the uniforms and even the refs have them halfway down their pants and shirts! It's like are you watching a sporting event or guys just covered in ads?

I dont think it'll ever get as bad as the Euro leagues, but there will be ads on the jerseys eventually. Once one major NA based team sport does it (besides MLS), it'll happen in the others.

I am European and one of my favourite things about the NHL is the distinct lack of advertising on the ice and on the jerseys. Some of the SEL jerseys are sexy as hell when you see them sans all the ads in exhibition games and whatnot.

The travel was too unbalanced for the Western teams compared to the Eastern teams, especially for Detroit and Columbus.

I was thinking something like that, but it would be kind of confusing having an Eastern Division and an Eastern Conference so I'm really interested to see what they come up with for that division since obviously Northeast wouldn't make sense for Florida and Tampa Bay.  They could avoid this problem by just naming the divisions after people again which is why I think that idea has some steam.
