I truly see your point about Carolina but who else fits in our division? Montreal/Boston/Toronto/Buffalo are big rivalries and i don't see them coming to the D division. Ottawa being a Canadian team has to stay and breaking up 1 of the Florida teams won't work, Carolina is the only option i see. Also remember rivalries do play a huge roll in terms of realignment just look at the NFL east. Dallas is in a division with the Giants,Redskins, and Eagles and considering there are so many teams closer in the NFC to those 3 (even Carolina in football) the travelling was not obviously a factor.
Call me nuts but watching the Islanders since the late 80's i really miss the Caps in our division..The Easter epic and the Dale Hunter incident are some of my most memorable memories lol
