And it may just benefit Winnipeg, too, since they have a pretty grueling travel schedule with the current conference/division structure.
I think Minnesota's is far, far worse than ours. That said, I'm big on that proposed alignment and not the one that appeared in an Ottawa paper with us, MN, EDM, CAL, VAN. Blech to that.
Not sure what we're getting with Tangredi and I'm not at all sure how to respond to us moving Ponikarovski out already either. Net result is we moved Poni and got Tangredi + 4th round pick, so ok there though the early moves are either encouraging or discouraging, I'm not sure which.
Bummer for Karlsson given how bright his light was shining. Same thing happened to Selanne in his second season in Winnipeg so you can come back for it, but this and Spezza hurts Ottawa a lot.
