I'm not sure how the schedule works right now, but when it was completely haywire I thought up this idea.
Since we all didn't like the new system with its long stretches of not playing teams, but we liked how there were rivalries in divisions, I tried to make a happy median.
What if you played each team in your own division eight times and every other team twice?
The schedule would still be 82 games, each team would play one another at least twice, and there is still a chance of a division rivalry to develop.
Just an idea from a hockey fan who misses the old schedule.
