NHL re-alignment?

With the relocation of the NHL's Atlanta franchise to Winnipeg, the league will need to address divisional alignment. The possibilities are endless-- Remember the NBA's (Miami-Orlando-Minny-Charlotte) sliding scale from one division to another to another which was the idea of NHL Commish Gary Bettman, then general counsel for the NBA.

Re-alignment for the NHL might be simpler.  For instance:

- Atlanta/Winnipeg - moves from Southeast to Northwest
- Vancouver moves from Northwest to Pacific
- Dallas moves from Pacific to Central
- Nashville moves from Central to Southeast
