I think Columbus's chances of winning against the South East are better than their chances of winning against Detroit, Chicago, Nashville, and St. Louis.

Edit: Also, I heard that if/when realignment talks come up again, there will be no consideration of previous (verbal) agreements and it will be a completely clean slate. Basically they will assess what is best for the league and let each of the 30 individual teams weigh in. Most Western teams want Detroit to stay there because of the clout they bring and I think the East wants them to stay West as well. That's from CBJ President Mike Priest though so there might be some bias, I don't know.
