The NHL group on this site is rather dead so I thought I would post this here where it will get seen by more people. This topic is to discuss the recent talks of relocating 2 current NHL Western Conference teams to the Eastern Conference. The Columbus Blue Jackets and my team the Detroit Red Wings.
Both teams are in current favor of the move as they are truthfully from a geographic standpoint located in the East, (So is Chicago, but no one like them )
I myself am in favor of the move for the Wings to go to the East, because as of now, out of all the NHL teams, they travel the most, moving them to the East will cut down on the amount of traveling they have to do as well as allow for the Stanley Cup finals to have a chance to feature the Wings and the Avalanche, which, I mean c'mon let's face it. The Wings and the Avs have the best rivalry in the league.
Anyone else have thoughts on this?
