Magnus Posted October 26, 2008 Share Posted October 26, 2008 This is not a topic about realignment.I know that those ideas have been done to death, warmed over, and killed again.This is just a scheduling adjustment idea for the NHL and/or NBA, who both play 82-game seasons. I came up with it in light of the NHL's scheduling readjustment this year.40 games inside a team's own division. A heavy emphasis on divisional play would cut down on travel costs and intensify some rivalries, I think.20 games against the opposite conference (10 teams once, 5 twice)20 games against the 10 non-division, in-conference teams.That brings it to 80 games.The extra 2, which bring the total to 82 (why? I don't know) would be played against a designated team in the other conference.I personally think that 82 games is a terrible number.It doesn't divide into anything very well.But this is what I came up with.Thoughts?
