I am really surprise that it has only come up in this page that the PHX to QUE plays a huge role in the realignment. I thought that most people had that in mind already.

Truthfully, I see merits in it without the Coyotes moving. I really do. The west is a mess anyway, and with Winnipeg in the SE, well - that's not good.

But, anyway, yes. The truth is that there is no way to fit QUE into a 6-division format.

Here is why:
Start with NE- Obviously, QUE goes there. Then you want MONT, and their rival BOS. Then, how can you leave OTT out of that division? Now, you have 4 teams. How do you split TOR and BUFF?

So, you either end up splitting MONT and BOS or TOR and BUFF, or OTT gets left out.

Like MoreOrr said, I would love to be in the room for that discussion.
