NHL.com might have come up with the worst-case scenario for the Wild. No Central Division, no Winnipeg, still stuck with everyone in a different time zone and no geographic or historical rivalries.

Quote:
If the Canucks kept their current spot in the Northwest, the Jets might be moved into the Central in a straight swap (with the Wings or Predators filling the vacancy in the Southeast). The reason for that is simple: I don't believe the League sees any sense in having a division consisting of four Canadian-based clubs and only one American-based team. I think that would be a hard sell to the Avs or Wild -- the U.S. teams that would be faced with that option.
