NHL Realignment

posted in: NHL | 0

Well, with the Blue Jackets, the team I adopted while living in Columbus, moving to the same division as the Islanders, the team I’ve rooted for since I was a little kid, it might soon be time to truly say goodbye to Columbus.

Moving to the East is definitely good news for the Jackets though, in terms of less travel, more games in the same time zone and budding rivalries wit teams that are closer to Ohio, like Pittsburgh, Buffalo, etc.

On the other hand, they run into the same problem that the Isles have, trying to improve and make the playoffs in a division that already has the Pens, Flyers, Rangers and Devils, without having the same budget to spend and other advantages used to attract free agents that those teams do.
