Detroit can talk about how much it wants to be in the East (they've been asking for it since what... I can remember them asking in the early 90's, but I'm sure it goes back further) but at the end of the day the NHL isn't going to allow them into the East.

If Detroit goes to the East, what team in the West fills in the void left in the national spotlight? NHL will keep Detroit in the West in order to have an option to pitch to NBC and Versus for Western Conference games.
