Kane, St. Louis has all the pieces they obtained in the Johnson trade. Nashville is always a threat with their drafting.

As for teams we got away from, I'm more enthused about dodging Edmonton. So many years of high draft picks, and it doesn't look like they squandered them.
With the mayor of Glendale saying that they won't cover another year's losses of the Coyotes and no arena quite ready in QC, I think that potential move will affect the divisions. Seattle has been being mentioned more and more in relocation discussions now that Winnipeg has their team back. That is the only potential destination that wouldn't cause a major borqing of the theorized divisions...
