While the NHL will probably try to make the realignment simple with just a few moves, this could be an interesting scenario.
The Nashville Predators could get moved to the Southeast Division with the Wild taking their place and the Jets taking over the Northwest's open spot.
But another move that could happen in this scenario would be to move the Colorado Avalanche into the Pacific Division and have the San Jose Sharks take over the Avalanche's open Northwest Division spot.
In that case, the new Western Conference divisions would look like this:
Central: Blackhawks-Blue Jackets-Red Wings-Wild-Blues
