I disagree that realignment should consider Nash, Crosby, Stamkos, etc. Players come and go, teams get better and decline. Sure, Pittsburgh may be a draw now, but what happens when Malkin and Crosby call it a career?
Realignment should be about geography/time zones, especially in the West....and nothing more.
Thing is, I am not expecting the league to do what is best for Rangers fans. I responded to what was said about each team playing everyone at least twice.
I agree completely about what you say about basing it on individual players and what teams are hot now. Rangers fans have been complaining about it too. Saying that with the Devils, Flyers, and Penguins in the division, that makes one spot available for everyone else. I forgot the Rangers won the division last year. Secondly, teams go up and down. Look at the Pens from Mario's early days til now. Flyers went 5 years without making the play-offs in the early 90s. Rangers went 7. Devils have been consistent.
