It's too easy to slam how the NHL's done it without actually coming up with a solution.
NYR, NYI, NJ, Phi, Pit, Was, TB, Fla
Bos, Mtl, Ott, Tor, Buf, Clb, Car
That may have felt a little more right than what they did.
If there's one thing more complicated than NHL labor issues, it's NHL realignment.
