I've been living and working in Spain for just over 3 years now. I enjoy to ski, wake board, play cricket and I have an unhealthy passion for football, and unfortunately Manchester United. I enjoy reading, learning and writing about almost all sports, as well as taking a keen interest in international politics. 

I studied Education and used to be a teacher, before studying a Masters in Comms and Marketing and moving away from the classroom. I left England when I was 22 and have since lived in numerous countries; namely Nicaragua, Peru, Argentina and Vietnam. Vegetarian. I like dogs and discovering new music.

NHL considers a Canadian Division for the 2020/21 season

2020/12/15

Over the years, there has been much dispute over the distance players have to travel over the typical 82-game season, but the current climate has escalated things. The NHL is proposing a four-division league, adding an all-Canadian division.

Here’s our understanding of how things would look now:

  • Canadian Division: Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.
  • Pacific: Anaheim, Arizona, Colorado, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Minnesota, San Jose, and St. Louis.
  • Central: Carolina, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Florida, Nashville, and Tampa Bay.
  • Northeast: Boston, Buffalo, New Jersey, the Islanders, the Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington.

This is our interpretation of how things may pan out if the realignment was to go ahead. As it stands the NHL season is due to begin on January 13th, so if the changes are to be implemented things need to move quickly. While this is true, strategically it shouldn’t be too complex for the organizers to figure out how they’ll how and where they’ll host the games within each division.
