NO reason to realign and have unbalanced conferences at this point
There are plenty of reasons to realign. Do I really need to go over them again???

- Dallas/Minnesota/Winnipeg all want to play most of their games in the central time zone. They are losing money because of their game times.
- Detroit/Columbus don't want to play as many games out west as they do
- Similarly, teams out west would rather play more games in the pacific time zone than play @ Minny or Dallas
- TB/FLA want to be with Toronto/Montreal who they consistently make better gates off due to all the snowbirds
- Team owners want every team to play in their buildings once a year

Is that not reason enough for change?
