Chain alignment

My rear brake plate needed better spacing for it to not rub on the hub. Giving it the additional space on the inside meant that things shifted over a little more, so now my chain is out of alignment more than I am comfortable with.

I like the spacing for my brake so i want to leave that, i was hoping that i could just add some spacing to my rear sprocket and have it shift over the little i need to make the chain aligned.

My question is, will this cause my rear socket to be stressed in a way that might bend or warp it? Or should it be ok since the forces are distributed around the 6 bolts?
