RACKING UP THE MILES: In N.Y., Larry Brooks wrote the “imperfect realignment plan the NHL and NHLPA have adopted for the next three years won’t be as injurious to the sport as the one the MLBPA pushed on baseball,” but it “sure isn’t the utopian landscape the folks running the show like to suggest, either.” The Stars, Red Wings, Blue Jackets, Jets, Avalanche and Wild “benefit from changes that create divisions defined, for the most part, by time zones.” But “nothing is more preposterous than pretending this structure benefits the Lightning and Panthers because of a few extra visits a year by the Canadiens, Maple Leafs and Red Wings.” Travel will be “murderous” (N.Y.
