Embrace these newer teams, support their efforts to succeed, welcome them.
Personaly I would like to, but give me a reason to care. Wich teams I care about for example? Nashville and Carolina because they are well-run franchises.

But really this sentiment I talked about, was mostly seen over time by me when I talk hockey with colleges, friends, family members, guys I play hockey with and it's even shared by most hockey tv personalities in Quebec. I did not travel far for it, but it's a perception I presume is shared by people living in Saskatchowan or any parts in Canada and hockey hot beds. Especially hardworking people that live and breath hockey. Although I may be wrong.
