Our location makes us a viable option for either the Northwest or Central division. However, our reason to join the Central isn't very good. Rivalries from a past franchise isn't going to be heard as a logical reason for us to win a slot in the Central, plus the easier option would be leaving us in the Northwest.

On the plus-side, if we stay in the Northwest we'll either be playing a new team in Winnipeg, or we'll be getting rid of Vancouver. Either of those results makes me happy.
Well the issue with what ended up being proposed is that Minnesota stays in the Northwest while Winnipeg goes to the Central. Yes it means the Wild are not in a division with 4 Canadian teams but the NW would be without Jets v. 2.0 and with Vancouver.
