NHL's New Division Names Could Bring In Some Unexpected Benefits for League

The NHL's realignment announcement was met with some mixed reviews earlier this month, with some folks excited about the rekindling of some old-fashioned division rivalries, and others concerned with the drastic change to playoff seeding.

One benefit that may not have been discussed before, though, involves the added cash the league can make with its yet-to-be-named new divisions, as Will O'Toole points out in the cartoon above.

Since graduating from Seton Hall University, Will O'Toole has been doing cartoons for over 30 years for a number of papers (USA Today), magazines (College and Pro Football Weekly) and websites (CBSSportsline.com). He is believed to be the only national cartoonist to have voted for the Heisman Trophy and the Wooden and Naismith Awards.
