NHL Realignment, In One Handy Graphic
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
Stashed in: Hockey
* Winnipeg (formerly Atlanta) moves to western conference
* Detroit moves to eastern conference
* Columbus moves to eastern conference
Western conference shrinks from 15 to 14 teams, eastern conference grows from 15 to 16 teams.
So suddenly every team in the West has much better odds of getting into the playoffs.
I wonder if the teams in the East are annoyed about that.
