It will be intresting in 2 years when they revisit the realignement to see if it works. It is rumored they might announce expansion in that time. Quebec and Toronto being the 2 teams. I could also see the NHL relocating teams if under the new CBA thoes teams are still losing money. Florida, Colombus Tampa and Dallas could be moved if that happens.
2 canandian expansion fees would bring a ton of money into the league. After that the realignment would be alot different.
moving Florida to Seattle
moving Colombus to KC
