Locally, the remaining team fans have also been well respresented at Lightning games.
Especially if they get Detroit and somehow QC added in. Those two cities/teams are going to be more attractive additional rivals than the Florida teams will ever be.
And I've always argued that there is a NYC - Florida connection as well, so why not combine those two.
