Anyone want to go to Winnipeg for some Caps SE Divisional matchups?

 

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=6610414

"The NHL will not realign its divisions for the 2011-12 season, meaning Winnipeg will play in the Southeast, a league source confirmed to LeBrun."

 

I bet the Caps sure don't.  Better than the Wings ending up in the East, I suppose.

This has to be detrimental to the Caps, right?  I mean they will play @Winnipeg more times than other nondivisional conference opponents.  And imagine those back-to-back matchups within the SE... 


Or is this move fully inconsequential to the Caps for now?
