Still looks unlikely, but more and more buzz building about this.

That would be Atlanta's second NHL franchise lost to a Canadian prairie town. Fool me once...

Move Atlanta to Winnipeg, and Florida to Regina, or Seattle, or Portland. Place both teams in the Western Conferance.

Then move the CBJ, and Detroit to the east. (it's asinine to have two Eastern Time Zone teams in the Western Conferance).

(This is third on my Sports wish list right behind a College football playoff, and a Baseball Salary cap.)
