Detroit actually voted for the NHL's 2011 proposed alignment. Move Colorado to the Pacific, Detroit+Columbus to the Central (I mean CTZ here), and slot QC into Northeast, and you get something very close to the 2011 alignment. That's what SHOULD happen. I think what will happen is...
  • 2013-2014 season... "pull a Winnipeg"; i.e. QC in Pacific, due to lack of time to adjust
  • 2014-2015 season... QC and Colorado will swap divisions. Actually better for Colorado, and QC will be only playing 1 hour later on local TV for road games
  • 2015-2016 season (or maybe 2016-2017)... an expansion franchise in Seattle
