Regardless, I don't think Winnipeg gets out of the South East without a full scale realignment anyway.
Even if it is a simple swap, they're going to want to swap either Detroit or Columbus. It's so much easier for the TV people that the league is totally beholden to.

I still think the league's original realignment plan is the one we'll end up seeing, with four conferences. I just hope they come up with a better playoff plan (keep two conferences, please, even if you have more interconference play) and actually go through with the expansion to 32 teams (which I think is probably inevitable - Phoenix moves to Seattle, Quebec City and ? enter the league).
