It kills DET/CHI and DET/STL, but it restores the just as natural (if not more) DET/TOR, and brings DET/MTL and DET/BOS closer to reality as well. I'm excited to see the Wings and Leafs get back at it, because that stretch of road between the two is pretty even in terms of fandom. Gonna be some loud games.
It's not perfect, but neither is the arrangement of teams right now. Chicago is the one getting the most screwed, but considering the Hawks are on 200ish game sellout streak, I doubt Rocky cares.
