Yes, it was a 3-year experiment.  Supposedly, they may have a vote on LV and QC in September, so I think a lot will hinge on that and any re-alignment won't actually happen until those teams start playing.  IMO, if in September they vote to add the teams, add them next season and bang it all out together.


Thought so, I hope they at least change the playoff format. The whole 3 teams per "division" make it and the last two are up to WC bothers me

Ok but the average team cant afford to waste tens of millions on compliance buyouts. The Devils used theirs on Volchenkov and Hedberg. That wasnt even 10 million dollars combined. The buyouts definitely helped out big clubs like Philly and the Rangers more than anyone else.


Still mad we wasted a compliance buyout on what, a $1m annual hit? So damn dumb when we had worse on the table



Side note: Is it at the end of this season when the BoGs vote about a possible new division format?

Great quote at the end:


"Obviously Zubrus isn't the biggest reason for New Jersey's struggles - not even close - and age surely factors in, but he is part of it."


This is exactly right. Having 12 forwards on your 4 lines, and at least 6-7 of them are failing to perform to expectation...now THAT is a problem. 


I'm surprised that article didn't close out out with, "maybe Gelinas could be moved to bring in another forward to help remedy the situation."

Possible Avs Stadium Series jersey concept could incorporate old Rockies logo
