Hmmm, maybe this is the long term plan; allow Hamilton a team but force them to play out west.

Wouldn't it be better for fans if the Rangers and Flyers could meet each other in the Stanley Cup Finals? Or Pittsburgh and Washington? Or Montreal and Boston? Or Detroit and San Jose?

I understand the travel issue, but doesn't baseball have a similar problem, and they seem to deal with it just fine. (Yes, I know they play a series which helps, but they still have a lot of travel.)

Edit: Oh. You're still going on about the 8 teams vs 7 teams, aren't you? It really doesn't confer any real advantage for anything that matters, which is exactly why you don't see any serious complaining about it - other than from some misguided fans, I suppose.
Appease the West Coast teams? Did you have blotter for breakfast? The boys out west will travel like sunzabvtches regardless of the divisional line ups. This realignment is all about catering the whiny little bvtch owners back east.

As for the 7 vs 8 team divisions, the math is quite simple. Teams playing in a conference where only three teams miss the playoffs have a significant advantage over teams playing in a division where 4 teams miss out.

I don't think the 7 vs 8 is that big of a deal. Yes you might squeak by a tad easier in the group of 7, but you will still need to beat the number 1 seed to advance. It would be a bigger deal from a financial perspective if you were an owner that got to reap the benefits of a few extra playoff games that would be otherwise missed.

Geographically this makes a lot more sense than the old alignment. East Coast already had it cushy with the exception of travel to Winnipeg and the 2 Florida teams.

This alignment helps the Western conference teams IMO. Remember its not just travel distance, it's Time Zones. How many stupid 9 or 9:30 starts do I have to watch as a Wild fan? Okay maybe I should man up on that. But its also about letting kids watch games which is almost impossible with the current setup for 1/3 of the games. It was a matter of getting the minimum votes from the more profitable East Coast teams to make it a reality. See linkey below for old vs new maps:

All the news leading up to this made it seem like it was done for Illich and the Wings, who were "promised" a move back to the east.

It really helps Detroit and Dallas.
