What do the NBA and other sports have to do with the NHL? Also, we should add a link to the World Cup of Hockey.--Sonjaaa 04:11, Sep 6, 2004 (UTC)

Standardization[edit]

I'm working on standardizing the various major North American leagues into a standard template, for the ease of viewing. As a result, I've been taking ideas from one and transplanting them to others. Here, I modified the box to break the teams down into divisions, like in the NBA box. I think it makes it easier to find teams, organized by division. Feel free to leave comments. -- Kermitmorningstar 06:13, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Margin[edit]

The template needs a margin so that when templates are placed successively on pages such as the NHL page that there is a minimal amount of space between them. The alternative to include the space in the mage but that leaves too much space, and is usually cleaned up when people make changes with AWB, etc. -- Jeff3000 21:53, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Division vs. Alphabetical[edit]

I think we should change the box so its more like the other league boxes. Put the teams in by division instead of putting them in alphabetically. Agreed? Disagreed?Portlygrub 11:06, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. The Trophies and Defunct teams sections should also be included as a single link at the bottom of the template (and maybe moved into their own templates) like the other three major sport templates {{NFL}}, {{MLB}}, and {{NBA}}... PaulC/T+ 07:22, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

1. Moved individual trophies/awards to {{NHLawards}} and replaced with link to awards page. Yes check.svg Done
2. Moved defunct teams to {{NHLdefunct}} and replaced with link to defunct page. Yes check.svg Done
3. Converted to new {{Navbox with columns}} template and implemented same format/color scheme as {{NFL}}, {{MLB}}, and {{NBA}}. Yes check.svg Done
I also added a link to the WHA, but I believe that was the only change I made (unless I lost track). There are a few issues with the new {{Navbox with columns}}, such as I am not happy with the way I placed the Conferences, but the template does not allow a title to span more than one column (as of yet). Please feel free to add/delete/revert and provide feed back. Regards.--Old Hoss 18:40, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Conference colours[edit]

Aren't the Conference colours reversed? Red is Eastern and West is blue. --Hasek is the best 02:55, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Links[edit]

Should the links for each individual team link to the respective current season? Jmlk17 19:29, 20 November 2007 (UTC)


Add one more item[edit]

Hey I created a new page on the NHL YoungStars Game I am just wondering if you want to place it in the template. 13:41, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Question about template use[edit]

Hi. Just a quick note - doing minor tweaks to a couple of related articles - 1924-25 NHL season and 1981-82 NHL season, I noticed this template at the end. All well and good, but it seems to appear on those articles as 'National Hockey League (2007-2008)'. I don't know if this is intended, or some weird side effect of templates - but it looks odd to have an article about the sport in the 1920s apparently using a template which is related to the 2000s... CultureDrone (talk) 22:37, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I do agree. I think the template would suffice without a date in the header. Flibirigit (talk) 18:27, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

East - West[edit]

Wouldn't it be logical to have Western Conference on the left, and the Eastern Conference to the right? I mean, that's how it appears on a map. LarRan (talk) 20:28, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Hmm ... I guess that would make sense, but I guess I don't mind either way. - Rjd0060 (talk) 20:52, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

One more interwiki[edit]

Hello. Can anyone user make interwiki link to fi:Malline:NHL? Thanks. --Nurtsio (talk) 18:31, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

List of Stanley Cup Final overtime series winners[edit]

The article List of Stanley Cup Final overtime series winners has been added and removed from the template. I actually think it was a good addition, but wanted to add a common discussion area. — MrDolomite • Talk 15:49, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Edit request[edit]

Next to Stanley Cup, the order of the rounds should be "Playoffs—Conerence Finals—Finals—Champions". 71.146.8.88 (talk) 01:32, 26 February 2012 (UTC)

New alignment[edit]

This template is obsolete. It must be updated for the new alignment.  Randall Bart   Talk  19:43, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Done. As the NHL has not provided the permanent division names, I have used Division A, B, C, and D. For now they still link to the Pacific, Central, Northwest, and Atlantic divisions. This is the alignment used by the NHL on NHL.com currently. Once the NHL confirms the division names these can be updated. shaggy (talk) 15:16, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
IMO, the links to divisions is WP:OR. Again, the league has not announced division names yet or whether they will use those same names, and thus it is pure speculation on whether the new divisions will be considered successors to those four old divisions. Just as the old Patrick Division was considered different from the Atlantic Division. Zzyzx11 (talk) 01:18, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
That's fair. Thank you. shaggy (talk) 02:06, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
