in Wpg + will still get Ott, Tor & Mont 3 times
(4) With the "wildcard" system...it is even possible for Wpg to play a Cdn. matchup in playoffs before round 3
Even Colorado in our division as opposed to Detroit/Columbus makes sense.
When one looks at a map...this realignment is smart in almost every way!
Van Cgy and Edm will be in Winnipeg once each season, and we will be going there once each season, same as the Mtl, Tor, Ott. We play each non-division team twice, no matter if they are in the same conference or not.
