Of course it's dependent, simply because realignment is a league-wide discussion. If anyone is accepting of the fact that Winnipeg should be moved into a division with teams closer than those in their division now, that invites others with the exact same issue to be brought to bear.
Let's keep in mind that the NHL believed that the realignment proposal they last passed by a 26-4 margin would be passed by the NHLPA. If the NHL provides the NHLPA with the requested information regarding a schedule mock-up and travel concerns, there's no reason to believe that the NHL won't simply attempt the exact same realignment.
