Yep..this is not to say Chicago isn't a rival but Detroit's #1 rival was always Toronto and renewing Montreal/Boston and getting out of the western time zones is icing on the cake.

It's more of a rivalry to the Blues than Detroit as well.

I think the sticking point about Western teams being afraid of losing ticket sales to Detroit remains. But at some point something has to be worked out for it to happen.
