The problem with realignment also is what happens to teams that might move? If Phoenix ends up in Seattle or even in Hamilton or Quebec City, we gotta go through this all over again.

Bettman and all these schmuck owners can smile and think realignment is wonderful until;

A. Certain teams finish 5th or 6th a few years in a row with more points than teams in other divisions in 3rd or 4th. Yeah, fan A's team losses five games in a row once during a season and doesn't make it in the playoffs; wonderful.

B. How is this going to grow a fanbase if certain teams are first round lunch every year? The Jets of the 80s were hurt because they had to go against the Oilers or Flames every year and could never make it past them. Same with the Whalers. Same with the Nordiques. The Capitals never got out of round 2 until 1990.

I don't think this is the best solution for growing the game.
