NHL Realignment Good For Hartford Whalers

If the proposed new NHL realignment were to pass the Atlantic division would have: Carolina, Columbus, New Jersey, New York Islanders, New York Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Washington.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are not even close to the Atlantic Ocean. Also, the Blue Jackets ranked 28th in the league in attendance last year with an average of 13,725 people paying for a ticket. Is this the NHL planning for the future?

The Blue Jackets are the worst team in the NHL and could use a change of scenery.
