Minnesota wouldn't like that, but at least they'd get Winnipeg in their division. Hell of a lot closer than Vancouver.
I'm not sure how Vancouver would feel about being in a seperate division than Edmonton & Calgary. Both Alberta cities are the closest NHL cities to Vancouver (Calgary - 971 km; Edmonton - 1,158 km) and have historical rivalries, plus they are 1 hour flight without customs, even if it's a different time zone. San Jose would be the nearest divisional at 1,580 km and they would require customs. The one advantage is that the other Pacific teams are relativily close together (a 4 game road trip wouldn't be that bad) and they're all in the same time zone.
Does anyone know how long it takes to fly from Vancouver to San Jose & Los Angeles?
