TORONTO (AP) NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says the league has no immediate plans to expand and adjust its unbalanced conference alignment.

"What most people say to me is, well, there's 16 teams in the East, 14 in the West. What's wrong with you? Can't you count?" Bettman said at a Canadian Club luncheon. "And I say, `Yes, I can count, but I also can tell time and we finally have all 16 teams in the Eastern Time Zone in the right place.'

"But you don't expand just to fulfill somebody's notion of symmetry. It's a very important business decision to make, and you do it for the right reasons at the right time."
