I have asked this a couple of times and got no response.
Did anyone see anything about realignment in the new CBA. I can't believe that it wasn't addressed as an issue.
Bettman said it is not in the new cba and will be dealt with at a later date. It was not a issue to be resolved now, there were more important things that needed to be dealt with to get the season going in the new cba. Also things such as World Championship and Olympics will be dealt with later.
