NHLPA refuses to consent to proposed NHL realignment

It has come out today that the NHLPA has refused to agree with the realignment proposal the NHL had come up with earlier in the season. This means that there will be no realignment next season, and the current division and playoff format will remain. As this is the final season of the current CBA, I would guess that the NHLPA would like realignment to be in the discussion of the next CBA, or is using it as a bargaining chip of some sort. Of course, it could just mean they disagree with the return to divisional playoffs, unequal conference sizes, increased travel for the Eastern teams, or the issue of the Florida teams in the same conference as the Northeastern teams.
