Tweets from Bob McKenzie at TSN: http://twitter.com/#!/TSNBobMcKenzie
Quote:
More and more NHL governors convinced DET will be moving to SE Div in Eastern Conference when realignment done in early December.

If DET goes to SE (East), it's plausible and possible WPG could take DET's place in Central Div (West). Realignment would be done.

Nothing firm yet on realignment, but DET has been good soldier in West for long time. WPG would be fine with Central as opposed to NW.

If that happened, DAL would be most unhappy. Stars want in Central Div. OK, that's all the realignment talk. Discuss amongst yourselves.

NHL won't put MIN in otherwise all CDN division. WPG said to be cool being in Central with 4 US.

Nashville to the SE would make the most sense geographically. I just can't see Detroit in the East.

Detroit is running scared of San Jose. Go to the East Wings. We will allow it.

Obviously this comment is meant to bait me. I won't go there.

But I don't recall any Stanley Cup banners or even finals appearances to boast about in San Jose ...

It makes less sense than you think. The difference in time zones is equally significant to simple geography. Detroit and Columbus are the only Western Conference teams in the eastern time zone.

The Preds, also, don't sound too eager to move to the East from anything I've ever heard. Detroit and Columbus have been lobbying.

If you guys have time, read this article by Bob McKenzie that outlines virtually every single factor in the realignment debate. It's very well thought out.

http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/bob_mckenzie/?id=377916

I'm totally in favor of realigning to four divisions, mostly because I love the idea of Rounds 1 and 2 being seeded based on division standings. I also love the idea of every team getting a home-and-away series with the other 29 teams. Variety can only be a good thing for attendance and fan interest.

I'd rather they remain in the West, but move to a more balanced schedule to at least even out the travel for all teams. The teams in the East, especially the Atlantic, have it so good travel-wise and there's a real disadvantage to many of the teams stuck in the middle.

I sympathize with the plight of a team like Dallas, which is geographically close to no one.

Kunitz resigns 2 years for 3.75 a year. Nice. He's a big part of our team.


Oh, and Sid is cleared for contact and should be back in a few weeks. Fap fap fap.

So my future brother in law Gabriel Landeskog scored his first NHL goal yesterday. I'm still excited.

If the Wild get stuck going to Vancouver, Edmonton, and Calgary as much as they are now, it's a joke. They need to be in the CENTRAL. They have one of the worst travel schedules in the NHL right now. It's time to even the playing field a bit..

Exactly. Minnesota is another team that should at least be playing its division games closer to the teams around them (Winnipeg, Detroit, St. Louis, Chicago). But there's no way of appeasing every team without converting to 4 divisions.

Wings shutout Vancouver to move to 3-0.

Very early, but the Wings hadn't had consecutive shutouts since 2006. After finishing 22nd in goals against last year, they do look more committed to sound defense so far.

1) this is CONSISTENTLY the best thread on SWDC during hockey season. Probably about 40% of the reason I visit here.

2) Avs beat the Senators 7-1.. Wow... I have a feeling they will cool down, but obviously better than they looked.

3) Nashville home yellows look horrendous

4) Kings away jerseys look so nice

Ottawa is so, so terrible.

Backstrom had a beauty saucer in OT.

Johnny T is a stud and Montoya is still getting it done. I think it's a team to watch, but I hate that 3rd pairing and the top-6 is too unreliable.

Johnny T is a stud and Montoya is still getting it done. I think it's a team to watch, but I hate that 3rd pairing and the top-6 is too unreliable.
Unreliable, but that unreliable could go the other way and a guy like Okposo, or even Tavares raising his game to the Stamkos-ish level could vault them into the playoffs as a 6, 7, 8 seed

Also, I just saw that Backstrom saucer pass, good lord that was an absolute BEAUTY. It LANDED on his tape.

Nielsen has played well, but he and Parenteau seem like they're just kind of there, a lot of the time (offensively, that is. I love Frans). Bailey has been a disappointment and we're all still hoping for another step from Okposo. I'd love for more filled out lines, which is why I pray for the future explosiveness of Nino and Strome. Tavares can carry a line with Moulson, can Okposo and Grabner do the same throughout a year? Asking them to do what Stafford and Ennis did for Buffalo last year actually doesn't seem like that tall of an order. KO needs to take that step, though.

This was a very good second half team last year with guys like Hamonic and Montoya playing well in conjunction with Grabner's breakout. One of the most underrated top-4 defenses with Streit back. I like their forward depth with Comeau, Reasoner, maybe even Rolston and Bailey. Could definitely see them in 7-8 if Capuano is the real deal.
