If Phoenix bolts to Winnipeg, which team do you want in the Pacific?

It's becoming a very real possibility that the Coyotes will be playing in Winnipeg next season. If that happens, they will likely join the Northwest Division and one of the NW teams will get the boot. If so, which NW team should move to the Pacific Division?

My vote is for Vancouver, but I could be swayed to having the Avs back in our division again.

I want the Kings to leave the Pacific so we don't have to face Doughty.

Black1963 05-07-2010 04:07 PM

The Nordiques.

Geographically, Vancouver makes the most sense.

Julius Caesar Milan 05-07-2010 04:11 PM

Colorado and Vancouver were in the Pacific until 98-99

exactly why I chose them

Canucks

JBernierFan 05-07-2010 04:12 PM

Colorado. It would lead to a great rivalry between the two young teams that are on the rise.

Telos 05-07-2010 04:13 PM

It would have to be Vancouver in my opinion.

Black1963 05-07-2010 04:14 PM

I'd say "no" to vancouver because I don't want to hear us whine about the nux' fans whining.

goalsversusthreshold* 05-07-2010 04:16 PM

Vancouver makes the most sense based on the name of the division, but Colorado would be much better in terms of travel time.

It would be a pain in the ass in that regard and add more work for Tony and I :laugh:, but it makes the most sense geographically/travel wise, and could create some very interesting rivalries. I see the Canucks and Kings being at each others throats for years to come if that happened. Could be a good matchup.

I saw this thread and I have a few input on this:
If the Jets come back I would like the following:

1. Nominate myself as a moderator
2. Bettman won't mess with a good thing in terms of Canadian rivalry
3. Colorado seems likely the obvious choice

4. Even though its a long shot, reunite the old Smythe Division back
( Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Winnipeg and Vancouver ) <--

Are the nordiques that much further than the nux? I would have thought about the same.

Besides, aside from all the complaints about the whining, i also want to keep it all american in the pacific as well as one national anthem. And this from a guy who loves the canadien anthem.

Sydor25 05-07-2010 04:21 PM

Vancouver since they are in the Pacific time zone. But I could see the league keeping the Canadian teams together.

Ziggy Stardust 05-07-2010 04:25 PM

They will keep the Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton rivalry intact and add Winnipeg into the mix (along with Minnesota) to complete the Northwest Division.. Colorado will move to the Pacific Division, as it is a short flight from Colorado to Dallas, LA, ANA and SJ.

JDM 05-07-2010 04:30 PM

Colorado all the way. The time difference is minimal and the less I have to look at the Sedin's the better.

Our division is strong enough as is without adding the Canucks. Take them out of the NW and the NW is such a bad division you may as well put them in the East.

That makes the most sense from a hockey perspective.

Cutty Sarkn3ss* 05-07-2010 04:44 PM

Vancouver makes sense . . .

EDIT: Actually, I like Ziggy's point.

Shellz 05-07-2010 04:47 PM

I thought this poll was about what you wanted not what's best for the NHL and other teams. :)

Not a significant difference. Vancouver's about a 20 minute longer flight than Denver from LA.

Meh... they will get just as good of a Canadian rivalry with Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg. I would think Vancouver would prefer the reduced travel time a move to the Pacific would mean for them.

KingsRule 05-07-2010 05:09 PM

i still dont get why dallas is in our division?

BehindEnemyLines 05-07-2010 05:14 PM

I voted Vancouver but either of the teams would add a new flavor to the pacific.

KopitarFAN 05-07-2010 05:27 PM

Don't want another good team, a mediocre one will do just fine. Minnesota.

JDM 05-07-2010 05:31 PM

If the best team in the NW leaves the NW, then you will have a team sitting #3 in the west at the end of the season that probably doesn't deserve to be there.
