So who goes East? Nashville or Columbus? Geographically, Nashville is closer but they also have a good thing going in the WC. I think it will be Columbus. The league knows that franchise is bleeding money so getting Crosby and Ovechkin into the building more, plus lower travel costs, helps the CBJ.

I'm willing to bet they just slot Winnipeg in where Atlanta was in the South East for next season for a "quick fix" and then they'll look at a re-balancing after next season.

Detroit going east makes the most sense. Put Detroit in the South East and put Winnipeg in the Central.

Done.

How many of them went to Roughrider games?

I think it was decided that it was Columbus to the Southeast, Winnipeg in the division with Detroit.

It makes no sense to put Winnipeg in the same division as Florida. That's about a five-hour plane ride for an intra-division game.

That said, it wouldn't surprise me if the NHL does that.

They would only be in the Southleast for 1 year. They can't switch the divisions on such short notice.

Washington --> Florida is about 1000 miles. Detroit is only 200 miles further...

These players should be thankful for even playing in the NHL. I'm sure there are a lot of young hockey players who would jump at the chance to play NHL hockey.
Unless they have been to Winnipeg and seen the place.. how do they know they won't like it? Because a few people didn't? That's their reason?

Also don't forget that city council ponied up 25 million last year to cover losses, and once again approved it for this year. Atlanta's council has made it clear that will never happen. To be honest I don't blame the NHL. The players love it there, visiting players love going there, and they are basically guaranteed to break even every year as long as city council throws 25 million at them to stay.

Atlanta is in the process of preparing for city staff layoffs... and a $25M handout would not look very good... even a last ditched effort by local sports celebs could not help... I think even Lil Wayne got in on the act...

Lil Wayne? Is that anything like Li'l Sebastian on Parks and Rec?

I was just plugging the best comedy on TV right now. If you don't watch it, try it on for size. Ron Swanson might quickly become your favorite character on TV.

Here's an exchange with his ex-wife:
Tammy: Guess I'll be heading home.

Ron: Catching the number twelve bus to Satan's butthole?

Tammy: Actually I prefer the number 69 train to Humpsville Station.

And another quote from when he was about to be interviewed by a 9-year-old for a school project:
Ron: It's never too early to learn that the government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer's teet until they have sore, chapped nipples. I'm gonna need a different metaphor to give this nine year old.

And when he's challenged for a best-tasting burger by Rob Lowe (who made a low-fat turkey burger with fancy trimmings):
Ron: Here's mine. It's a hamburger made out of meat on a bun with nothing. Add ketchup if you want I couldn't care less.

And this is what set up the challenge:
Chris: Have you ever tried a turkey burger?
Ron: Is that a fried turkey leg inside a grilled hamburger? If so, yes, delicious.

One last one, I promise. This one is best with the accompanying video, but I have no time to look for it:

Ron: Indianapolis is home to Charles Mulligan's Steakhouse, the best damn steakhouse in the damn state. I have taken a picture of every steak I've ever eaten there. June 2004: Porterhouse, medium rare, Bearnaise sauce. January 2000: They call this one, The Enforcer. February '96: The steak ribeye. The Whiskey: Lagavulin 16. The lady next to me? A Wing Dang Doodle. Specifically, my ex-wife Tammy. OK, this is the first I ever went there. Look at me. Just a kid.
