Pacific: Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, San Jose, Phoenix, Anaheim, Los Angeles
Midwest: Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, Minnesota, Dallas, Colorado, Winnipeg, Columbus Atlantic: Washington, Tampa, Florida, Carolina, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, New Jersey
Northeast: Toronto, Buffalo, Ottawa, Montreal, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh.
This creates two 15-team conferences. However, there is the possibility that Philadelphia and Pittsburgh go to different divisions, which would involve 14 teams in one conference and 16 in the other. In that scenario, Columbus would also go east along with Detroit and join the Northeast, pushing Philadelphia into the Atlantic and splitting up the two Pennsylvania rivals.
Of course, Phoenix is the wild card. Who can predict where it will be next year?Report Typo/Error
