If you believe what they say about Detroit being promised to be put in the east, I wouldn't be surprised to see them end up in our conference.
With something looking like this after expansion.
Conference D
New Jersey
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
I think the whole Detroit to the eastern conference thing was based off of the two conference system. They're in the eastern time zone so their away games were always having really late start times, I think with the proposed/suggested lineup they wouldn't complain.. Moving them into this conference you suggest would be a pain travel wise for them so I really don't see that happening at all.
