At ESPN Insider, Craig Custance writes that the NHL and the players still need to agree on a new plan for divisional realignment after the players voted down the proposal that the owners agreed to.
That proposal saw the Rangers in a division in with the Islanders, Devils, Flyers, Penguins, Hurricanes and Capitals.
Custance spoke with a player who said “Those New York teams, geez, they’d never have to leave their time zone pretty much ever. I like the idea of everybody playing each other twice. That part is cool; you want to see every team and go to every team’s building. But we’re the ones who have to do it. We should have a little input.”
The Rangers reportedly voted against realignment when it was proposed during the season.
