I just don't understand why Fla and Tampa are in Atlantic instead of Metro and Pitts & Columbus are not in Atllantic
Changing the Atlantic to Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Toronto is mystifying. They saved three regional names and added the Metro Division. I would've honored history and gone back to the classic divisions (Adams, Patrick, Norris, Smythe). Having 16 teams in the East is unfair. The conference is much stronger with the additions of Columbus and Detroit. It just became much harder to make the playoffs. Eventually, they'll expand to 32 with possible destinations in Portland, Seattle and Kansas City.
