- The Detroit Red Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets are moving to the Eastern Conference. The Winnipeg Jets are moving to the Western Conference
- This Means Detroit and Chicago are no longer in the same division.
- The top three teams in each division will make-up the first 12 teams in the playoffs. The remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference
- Every team will play each other at least twice.
- The Canucks will now play against LA and San Jose more that Colorado and Minnesota (IMO the California teams have a better rivalry with us)
