Starting next season, the NHL will have four conferences:
East 1 – Boston, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Toronto
East 2 – Carolina, New Jersey, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington
West 1 – Anaheim, Calgary, Colorado, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose, Vancouver
West 2 – Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Detroit, Minnesota, Nashville, St.Louis, Winnipeg
Playoffs will be each conference first and then the winner of each conference get seeded 1-2-3-4, so we could get an all-East or all-West finals.
