Wow, if we lose tonight and Florida & Columbus win tonight, we'd be tied with Columbus for last in the league based on point % just over half-way through the season/

Per TBN, the NHLPA has given realignment the green light http://blogs.buffalonews.com/sabres/...-division.html

This realignment blows. I can only hope it lasts for the least amount of time possible. Any system that has teams have different % chances to make the playoffs is a ****ing joke. Baseball finally realized this, they switched it and right on cue hockey switches to a 16/14 split. A 5 year old would realize how faulty that is.

They're setting it up for expansion. Stupid in its own right, but a different stupid nonetheless.

If they were going for 4 divisions, have a 7 and 8 in the same conference. One of Columbus/Detroit could stay in the midwest, and then you have 2 15-team conferences. Can still do the top 3 in each division + 2 wildcards if they want to.

As if we didn't have enough/too many teams already.

Honestly Im fine with it. It'll be cool to see something different.

I understand that but I see no reason why they couldn't do 15 and 15 in the meantime. Additionally, that's making an assumption that both new teams would go in the Western Conference and if a team moves e.g. Phoenix that they stay in the Western Conference. If say, Quebec or somewhere in Northeast Canada got a team, someone has to move back to the West anyways. Have it 15 and 15 now and worry about balancing 16 16 when there actually are 32 teams.

It's for shortened travel and prime time games for West coast teams. No other reason. People are making a big deal about this but West coast teams have had to deal with way way more travel for years (thus putting them at a disadvantage). Obviously the players and the league are fine with it so it's a moot point.

Well, Columbus won at least.

Florida, not so much.

Well, root for Winnipeg and Tampa to go into OT and Winnipeg to win.

I can't believe Edmonton is a contender for a top pick again, we actually have to worry about them. Just unreal.

Maybe now that he is re-signed for so much, that means that they will be open to trading him for Leopold, Stafford and Brennan.

I think this pretty much seals him leaving.
They are $11m off their current spending for next season with eight players to sign and a traditionally a budget team, plus Perry is a Newport Sports client.

He's the 2013 Parise/Richards, who are also Newport guys.
