Pros:
-For the second straight year, no long HS Tourney/Final Five trip in March.
-Aren't waiting two months for a Central Time Zone road game.
-Mikael Granlund. That's always a pro.
-Keeping the traditional home post-Thanksgiving, post-Christmas and New Year's Eve early starts.

Cons:
-No Winnipeg. Even if you don't like using the "r" word that's a con financially.
-In fact, the teams that don't come to the X are the Jets, both Eastern Conference Finalists, Boston (last Stanley Cup winner from the East/own them for some reason), Tampa Bay (Stamkos) and Carolina (Staal). Trade the Hurricanes for a healthy Crosby and that's the worst-case scenario for selling tickets.
-The 6 game road trip in the beginning of November has a 4 day stretch where the Wild go from Madison Square Garden to Detroit back to the Rock. Why?
-Also a Denver to Nashville back-to-back.
