As someone else suggested, the Red Wings may have thought the previous plan was good enough to vote "yes", but this one is even better.
Yep, could be. That's an argument. But if that's the case then the key thing here isn't this new realignment scenario, that's only added fluff. The key thing will be any other changes which the League will be presenting to the PA in the hope to get their approval. But then, is it also assured that there won't be a greater negative vote from the owners with this new alignment idea? It was I think 4 against the last time, what if there's 8 against this time?
