Wings want to move East and claim 1st right to move but I think the Preds to Southeast make alot more sense

Wings are still the primary draw for road games in West and the NHL would be taking a gamble losing that.

Also I expect Wirtz to put up a hell of a fight against Wings moving

Hawks have lost Maple Leafs and North Star rivalries because of Leafs shift to East and Stars move to Dallas. Losing the Wings would be another devastating blow

The Norris division would be reduced to just the Blues and Hawks
