I have absolutely no interest in Winnipeg going to a "Northwest" Division with Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver. Anybody who suggests that needs to stare at a time zone map a little harder.
Best thing for the Jets will be getting as many games in the Central timezone as possible. I'm itching to get a rivalry started with the Wild and other rivalries are built in the playoffs.
The way I see this going is if Phx loses it's team, it goes to Seattle. No brainer. The expansions would likely be in QC and Markham with a possibility of Houston. The reason I say this is due to what's been pointed out earlier, you put expansion teams in Canada, it won't matter, the people will come and love it. Give Seattle an established team that's competitive right off the bat and that market is in the bank with Vancouver fans coming down to Seattle all the time as well.
