NHL Realignment Approved by Board of Governors: Who Will Be Nashville's Biggest Rival?

Frederick Breedon

The NHL has finally signed off on realignment beginning with the 2013-14 season, laying out a four-division format that has a "Back to the 80's" feel to its playoff format (which I love, Love, LOVE).

The following video explains many of the details, but the question I have for you is which team will become the Nashville Predators' biggest rival under the new format? With Detroit & Columbus jettisoned over to the East, will it be Chicago? There's certainly the history from the 2010 playoffs.

St. Louis? There's the background between Barry Trotz & Ken Hitchcock. How about Dallas (which has had some spirited games against the Preds of late) or Minnesota (hello, Mr. Leipold & Mr. Suter)? Vote in the poll below and sound off in the comments...
