Breaking: NHLPA agrees to realignment for next season

Just went down.

Toronto (March 7, 2013) – NHLPA Executive Director Don Fehr issued the following statement this evening:

“After discussions with the Executive Board, the NHLPA has given consent to realignment, to be re-evaluated following the 2014-15 season.”

--

Pierre LeBrun: And to be clear, NHLPA has consented to exactly the configuration proposed by NHL, so 16 teams in East, 14 in West, playoff wild-cards, etc

So... does that mean there will be re-allignment or that they're just going to talk about it in two years?

Pretty sure it means they will re-align next season, then re-evaluate the format after 2014-2015. Correct me if I'm wrong.

There will be re-alignment (pending owner approval) and they will review after the 2014-15 season.

Realignment with revision to said realignment (likely including expansion/relocation) for the 15/16 season.

The proposed realignment will start next season and then they will see if changes should be made after two years with it.

This Wings fan says finally, excited to be in the east where we belong. The Wings tv package just probably went through the roof, with only 8 possible late game starts now. Glad to have the Leafs back as well!

Dallas was one of the quickest yes votes along with Detroit and Columbus.

This sucks for many reasons. One of them is that I got used to where the link is for the Rangers' board. Now the HFBoards divisions have to get realigned.

I like the idea of realignment, but the thought of FLA/TB in Montreal's division bothers me.

And:

LeBrun: And to be clear, NHLPA has consented to exactly the configuration proposed by NHL, so 16 teams in East, 14 in West, playoff wild-cards, etc

I read that post and just imagined that's the reason Yakupov was celebrating like that in your avatar.
