The Malik Report
Hotstove and Friedman report that the NHL’s new realingment plan would put the Red Wings in the East

George here...I was watching the Red Wings-Predators game when Paul informed me that the Satellite Hotstove crew on Hockey Night in Canada discussed realignment, and Elliotte Friedman, the Red Wings would find themselves in the Eastern Conference!
According to Friedman, the NHL's run the following four "conferences" by every NHl team, and will present the following plan to the GM's shortly--and we will post the video of the Hotstove discussion when it's available (Paul will, I'm watching the game)...
Division A: Detroit, Boston, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay, Toronto
Division B: Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington;
Division C: Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville, St. Louis, Winnipeg;
Division D: Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Phoenix, Los Angeles, San Jose.
This is all preliminary stuff, but that's apparently the NHL's plan...And the imbalanced conferences will probably include a "wild card" playoff play-in.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
