NHL contingency plan puts Winnipeg in the NW and the Avs in the Pacific
CBC News - Manitoba - NHL schedule includes Winnipeg
The NHL schedule makers have created an itinerary for the 2010-11 season that includes a team based out of Winnipeg. The schedule is a contingency plan as the future of the Phoenix Coyotes remains undecided, according to numerous media sources, including CBC Sports national reporter Teddy Katz. A Winnipeg team would play in the Northwest Division, forcing Colorado to shift to the Pacific Division, according to Darren Ford, who has maintained a close watch on NHL dealings since launching his website, jetsowner.com, in 2003.
