The realignment thing is interesting. I think depending on what you think/hope/want for the Coyotes, you can read things the way you want them. Think of this: if the new alignment is a message that QC isn't a realistic option, isn't that the same thing as saying to a Seattle group "We'll take whatever you're offering for the Coyotes." Why would you remove a competitor? The only way to get more from a bidder than what the market is worth is through competition, right? Why would the league intentionally send that message several months before it has to?
