Awful realignment. Just awful.

-uneven conferences
-stupid wild card system
-Rangers play Jackets as many times as Devils
-Florida teams get screwed (the Atlantic would've been MUCH better for them)
-doesn't really reduce travel all that much
-I'm sure Chicago is thrilled with their one big rival shifting conferences

...all this so Detroit can start their road games an hour earlier. Really? Red Wings, you are the ultimate villain in this and will boo you relentlessly when you come to the Garden. This was all you had to do.

CLB to the Southeast
DAL to the Central
WIN to the Northwest
VAN to the Pacific

...done and done. No, let's scrap something that works perfectly so Detroit can be in the East, despite being ONE OF THE 15 MOST WESTERN TEAMS, and Columbus doesn't throw a hissy fit about it. Good job, NHL. This will last the 3 years and upon reevaluation they will realize how stupid they did this. Hopefully by then we have the expansion so they can just go to 4 Conferences and we can play a decent number of games against our real rivals again.

4 games against the Isles, Devs, and Flyers.... so we can have a home-and-home with the Wild. Just pathetic
