I would think that Pittsburgh would have just as great or even a greater chance of building rivalries with the teams you listed... But hey, in the end, it's just not having the Florida teams in with the Canadian teams which is the priority, however that can be achieved.
It didn't help build Phi/Pit. That's built in from the Patrick and Atlantic divisions.
A couple posts from the Dallas board about realignment. Potential arbitration to figure out alignment. That sounds about right for the NHL.
