Darren Eliot: The NHL's passive PR campaign

When the NHL announced realignment, people in Detroit got excited. Turns out not everyone shared their enthusiasm. Still, when the Board of Governors voted 26-4 in favor of the radical proposal, most believed it was a done deal. Even with six divisions becoming four conferences, the east/west divide becoming unbalanced at two seven-team sets in the east and two eight-team groups out west. Each team in the league would play one another home and home, and when playoffs rolled around the first two rounds would stay within each conference.
