...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
To the two bold points: Minnesota's owner says the new alignment is going to save his team ~$1m on travel expenses. That's not worth doing?

Also, Vancouver was never going to separate from Calgary and Edmonton. You want to preserve your rivalry games just so you can take them away from another team? Bull.

Expansion was inevitable with realignment or without.
