We liked the thought earlier, and according to a number of reports from all over the hockey media this Monday evening, that realignment plan we discussed earlier today is the real deal. The NHL will be realigning to a four-conference system, and the Flyers will join a Conference with Pittsburgh, the three New York-area teams, Washington and Carolina.
We'll wait on all the details, but it's looking exactly like what we posted earlier today: each team will play a home-and-home with each team in the league and inside the Flyers' seven team conference, they'll play each foe six times a year. Just like they do now.
Seriously, the Hurricanes can go to hell.
We'll have more in a bit. In the meantime, what do you think?
