True, it alleviates a little bit of the pain point. But you're still going to have a big push to get both Minnesota and Dallas in the Central where they belong. Winnipeg ultimately prefers the Central to the NW. Detroit, or Columbus, or both are still upset with the current setup. You still have the Phoenix situation hovering.
There's still plenty of motive and artillery out there for a bigger shakeup. There's no reason Winnipeg has to be screwed over one more season at the hands of the NHLPA's negotiating tactics. Maybe I'm mistaken, but I would think that they would have to be agreeable to more Flames and Oilers, less Panthers, Hurricanes, and border crossings.
