The Malik Report

Ugh. This was supposed to be simple—regardless of whether the Thrashers move to Winnipeg or Mars, they’d play in the Southeast Division and we wouldn’t be talking about realignment until next summer’s Board of Governors meeting as the Board, which meets on June 21st, has the final say as to whether the Thrashers go. ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, being a diligent and studious reporter, says that it’s messier (not Mark) than one could possibly imagine when it comes to realignment:
Realignment would very likely wait another year, meaning Winnipeg would play one season in the Southeast Division, because the league believes all board members deserve a say on the matter. All kinds of scenarios are in play. This might be a chance to do a massive overhaul of the league’s divisions and conferences, not just switch one team with another, a source told ESPN.com Friday.
In the words of Linda Richman, “discuss.”

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related.

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.
