Analysis of NHL's realignment plan

I just finished up an article over at, analyzing the NHL's new realignment plan

At first glance, the new plan might appear bad for the teams in the northeast and the Florida teams, who are all in a division together.  But we show, among other things, that the new plan has a fairly small impact on their travel... just a small increase over what their travel would have been in the the "best" 4-conference solution (if by "best" we mean the solution that would minimize travel).
