As a side note...Winnipeg's home games this season were switched from 7:30pm (central time) to 7:00pm!
Why? To accomodate their ALL Eastern time zone opponents from not having to endure an 8:30pm (eastern) start time.
In addition to this...Winnipeg had to change at least two of their 7pm starts on a Friday night to 6pm starts...for HNIC broadcasts.
In addition to this...Winnipeg continually has to play Saturday games in the afternoon (as mentioned by an earlier poster).
Winnipeg, Dallas, Minnesota, Chicago, St Louis and Nashville (as organizations) are very pleased with realignment in regards to TV.
Detroit and Columbus (as organizations) are going to be equally pleased.
This realignment makes sense!
