Despite the fact that the NHL approved a realignment of the league in December, the NHL Players' Association has yet to approve the proposed changes. It was announced Friday evening that the players' union has rejected the proposed realignment, meaning the league structure will remain the same until the 2012-13 season.

The plan to change from six divisions to four conferences for next season has been a hotly debated topic in the Twitter-verse. Check out what fans are saying about the union's decision.
