More games against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning? What the hell!?

Plenty of links today about last night's game, but naturally, a lot of chatter is about the realignment. Quoth Bettman:

"Frankly it's not the seventh and eighth teams that are competing for a playoff spot," Bettman said. "When you look at the map of North America, it's not geographic perfection so we're looking for something that makes the most sense and most fans and most clubs as comfortable as possible."

It's not the end of the world, but I think a reorganization to accommodate Winnipeg didn't have to be such a complete overhaul.
