Let’s say, just for the heck of it, that NHL teams are organized with players playing for their home American state, Canadian province or European country instead of for a professional franchise. And let’s say, just for fun, that teams in the NHL consist of a total of six players – a starting lineup of three forwards, two defensemen and one goalie.
