NEWARK, N.J. -- The NHL's board of governors will vote via fax today on a new realignment.
The league canvassed owners on the method of voting, in person or fax, and the resounding response was fax. The lack of desire for discussion on the topic seems to indicate the governors will vote to adopt the new realignment plan.
The Winnipeg Jets will play in what is now being referred to as the Midwest Divsion in the Western Conference. Also in the West will be the Pacific Division.
The Midwest will also include Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Minnesota, Nashville and St. Louis.
The Pacific will house Anaheim, Calgary, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Jose and Vancouver.
The Eastern Conference will have the Central and Atlantic Divisions.
The Central includes Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Toronto.
In the Atlantic, it will be Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington.
A league source says the division names will be tweaked by the start of next season. Atlantic and Pacific will stay the same but Midwest will be changed to Central. The Eastern Conference's Central Division will get a new name that remains undetermined.
