I think the idea is that there really wouldn't be an East or West anymore. At least not until maybe the 3rd round of the playoffs. That's the only way Detroit is ok with not moving east. The Wings don't mind going to Chicago, St.Louis, etc. Their deal is having to go to the west coast more often then other eastern time zone teams, besides Columbus obviously, who need the change even worse than the Wings do.
