I think they only become better with the reduced travel in the Eastern Conference...... scary thought.
I'm not scared of detroit. I think they're run will soon be over. I give it a couple of years. They are just too old and their farm system isnt anything to write home about. Their goaltending has been suspect the past few years. I mean when I think of detroit I think old and with good reason, Bertuzzi, Modano, Lidstrom, Holmstrom, Draper...zetteberg, kronwall, datsyuk, franzen, cleary are all getting up there. Rafalski just retired.
But having said all that I dont see the NHL moving detroit out of the West. The rivalries are too good there.
