There are rumors that the 2013-2014 NHL schedule will be released sometime next week, I would think an official Olympic announcement will have to be announced before a schedule release. Another rumor rumbling with the schedule release is that the Divisions will be named at this time which will have to be better than A,B,C,D or I,II,III,IV
Since there is no official word on the new division name we have four suggestions for the new divisions when they could be announced with next seasons schedule.
Division A Teams will become the Wayne Gretzky Division.
Los Angeles Kings
San Jose Sharks
Division B will become the Bobby Hull Division
St. Louis Blues
Division C will become the Gordie Howe Division
Detroit Red Wings
Tampa Bay Lightning
Toronto Maple Leafs
Division D will become the Mario Lemieux
Columbus Blue Jackets
New Jersey Devils
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull, and Mario Lemieux are all-time greats from different generations, old and not so old. All four are in the top 16 of goals scored all-time while playing in different eras.
