. The last proposal was fine...why did they have to screw Chicago and St Louis? I am honestly disgusted right now that they screw this rivalry like they did the to us with the Leafs and North Stars. There are no positives to this IMO when all they had to do was one single thing to keep Hawks fans happy and they couldn't even do that.
Obviously, the Chicago-Detroit rivalry isn't as important to Detroit, as it was Detroit that wanted to move to the East. You can't pin this on Bettman or anyone in the NHL front office....this is TOTALLY on the Illitch family.
I would've also preferred that Detroit remain in the Central and get the whole Norris gang back together again....Minnesota, Chicago and Detroit have traditional rivalries in football and baseball, and should have that in the NHL again as well.
