I appreciate the discussion about what will happen if/when Phoenix relocates (and to where) and when the league likely expands (Quebec City/Toronto2) and how then to realign the league, but there's no way that Winnipeg would be moved West into a grouping with the Alberta teams, Vancouver, and the California teams. While the Canadian rivalries would be cool, the overall time zone trouble would be asking too much of Winnipeg.

Personally, I don't really think the NHL should bother with a realignment at this time at all. Wait until the Phoenix issue is settled once and for all, and until the two expected expansion franchises are brought in to give the league the nice 32 franchises number to work with.
