Read: The Three Conference Solution

At The Sporting News, Jesse Spector suggests the NHL move to a three-conference system when the GM’s vote on realignment in Decemeber:

He says that two playoff spots would be available for the top teams in each conference and that the final ten spots would be open to the rest of the league.

It just seems like the NHL is gonna swap Detroit and Winnipeg and call it a day, but I do like these creative ideas for realignment.
