So wasn't one of the reasons for not simply switching Columbus and Winnipeg that the Blue Jackets simply couldn't be moved out of the central division due to their "rivalries"?

I really don't see any major benefits of this new alignment that justifies the imbalance between east and west. And divisional playoffs but wildcards? I'm completely puzzled how that works out.

And as mentioned: If there is expansion or even only relocation, the Toronto area will be one of the very first candidates for a new team. That will screw the aligment again though and someone will have to move back west anyway.
