Well I guess it is kind of tricky. 6-8 games versus every team in the division for sure. Then instead of playing other teams in the conference 4 times, maybe 2-3 times would be better to allow for more east vs west games so the Original Six can each play each other at least twice (home and away) per season, if not 3 or 4 times. If each team is playing the same amount of non-conference games, it should be fine. It seems like now, the non-conference games are random. There should be some consideration to Original 6/rivalries. For example, why do the Hawks play the Devils twice, but the Canadiens just once? That's ridiculous! Perfect opportunity to drop an overall meaningless game (in terms of interest) and add an Original 6 matchup.<quoted text>
Just curious, what do you think about a schedule that would have the 5 members of each division play themselves 8 times and every other team in the league, 2 times ???
I've often thought that scenario might be a win / win keeping the division rivalries and seeing all of the leagues superstars in your own barn at least 1 time per season.
