See, when YOU say it it sounds nice! I'm still bitter. I get the Western Conference teams and why this reorg had to occur, but I just don't understand why the Florida teams are in a conference with Buffalo, Toronto, Montreal, and Boston! They should be with Carolina and the Caps. Pittsburgh makes more sense in our conference. NJ makes more sense. Philly makes more sense. I get you have to draw the line somewhere, and yeah, maybe you don't want to split up the Pittsburgh/Philly rivalry and I can understand that so there... put Pittsburgh and Philly in our conference and the Fla teams in with Carolina and the rest. I don't know... you're right. No matter what, someone's getting disappointed. I'm not even that upset about them not coming to DC. At the end of the day, it's just one game. I'm sure I'll learn to love this because, after all, it's hockey. But man, I really hate to lose that Flyers rivalry.

Believe me dude, I'm a little torn about the whole thing. I don't think Florida should have teams in the first place. Where it all comes down, they're drawing the lines vertically, when indeed some lines should be drawn horizontally. But if you look back at the old Patrick Division (Devils, Isles, Rangers, Flyers, Pens, Caps) there would only be room for one more team under the current setup, breaking up the Florida teams, which wouldn't make sense either. So yeah, it's not gonna be ideal for everybody, but in the end, lines have to be drawn somewhere. Pens and Philly would be nice in our division but that's also a scary thought. I don't know if I want 4 extra games between those two, haha.

It actually is not at all about the Sabres or any of the other current Eastern Conference teams for that matter (except the Jets obviously). This format was created to balance out the west.
