Speaking of Divisions, this is the one place where this scheme falls short for us. Bettman said Thursday that they’ll be coming up with drab, directional names for the four Divisions.
“Most sensible geographic designations … the easiest to remember,” he said, like we ever had a hard time recalling who played in the old (Chuck) Norris Division. “We’re hoping to use the names that make it easier to conjure up in your own mind which teams play where.”
Yes. Like, for those fans whose school systems weren’t able to educate them to the point where they might have a hot clue where Vancouver is. Or Tampa.
It’s thinking like this that will be Bettman’s legacy.
