Like I have posted before:
Even if Vanc moves to the Pacific, without PHX, the Pacific must look like this:
VAN, SJ, ANA, LA, COL
The Mountain Central must look like this:
CAL, EDM, WIN, MINN, DAL or STL or CHI
The Midwest must look like what?:
2 of DAL/CHI/STL, NASH, and..... Who?? Remember, needs 2 teams....
Which is why I am sure that the issue can't be solved until the end of the PHX situation is resolved.
But that just provides another reason why the NHL voted to scrap the two-conference, six-division alignment.
