The NG is a minor modification compared to the 717? The NGs have brand new wings! And the CFM-56s aren't the same as those on the 300/400/500 family; they're more advanced. Now I'd like to see the 717 be successful-- Douglas' last legacy in the commercial transport business, but when Boeing cut the MD-90, it's hard for me to see how the 717-- without a family stablemate-- will compete well against Fairchild-Dornier's products, and others.
