|The NHL Realignment proposal|
As many may know the NHL is planning to realign the structure of the league next season. Instead of the 6 divisions and two conferences, the NHL will now have 4 divisions, The Pacific, Central, Mid-West, and Atlantic. The 2 conferences would be the Eastern conference consisting of The Atlantic and Central divisions and the Western Conference consisting of the Mid-West and Pacific divisions.
The Bruins would be in the Central division along with their current Northeast foes, Buffalo, Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto. Adding to the Central Division will be both Florida teams, Florida and Tampa, and a surprise of Detroit.
