NHLPA Rightful in “Prolonging” Realignment

By Mike Luciano (@mikeluci) As it was explained to me minutes before I started typing up this piece (by no other than our own Todd Cordell): Contrary to a misguided belief that the NHLPA flat-out rejected the league’s new realignment plan and playoff format for the 2012-2013 NHL season, the NHL Board of Governors actually […]
