I'd say 28 teams is perfect. Four divisions of seven teams.

First get teams out of: Florida, Tampa, Nashville, Atlanta, Phoenix, Carolina, and Long Island

Relocate four of those teams to Winnipeg, Milwaukee, Hamilton, and Quebec City. The last should go to either Indianapolis, Hartford, Kansas City, Portland, Minneapolis, or Seattle.

Disabandon two teams cause the league is already too diluted.

This should make the game much more attractive. The NHL needs to stop trying to "grow the game" and instead focus on making it's base interested in it again. The base has given up on the league since the early nineties and the nhl has become increasingly irrelevant since.

Ideally the nhl would look like this with 24 teams though.

Hockey was better in 92.

I think Canada could easily support 2 more teams, with each province (that borders the US, and combining the Maritimes) getting one, that would be 8 (with 2 going to either Winnipeg, Quebec City, Hamilton, and Halifax?) I think and they could be their own division.

The US could have two 8 team divisons broken at Lake Michigan. Or 10 teams each.
