The NHL Board of Governors has voted in favour of realignment. Then new NHL structure will feature four conferences instead of six.

There will be two conferences with eight teams, and two conferences with seven, and each team will play every other team in the league once in a home-and-home series.

While hockey fans won't see the realignment come into practice right away — league Commissioner Gary Bettman has to meet with the Players' Association first — that hasn't stopped them from sharing their opinions on the new four conference structure.
