Elliotte Friedman of CBC addresses questions about realignment options:
Q: What about Detroit’s proposal to go west only once?
A: Well, here are the questions: How many teams will make only one trip instead of two? And, who do you play those extra games against? Because if, say, 10 teams are affected, and they play two extra times against everyone in their division, aren’t you pretty much going Bettman’s way anyway?
Q: Why not just switch Detroit and Winnipeg?
A: Well, we all know how everyone wants a piece of the Red Wings. Too valuable a visitor. And you’re not helping Columbus and Nashville (same issues, especially when it comes to late-night TV viewing).
