I don't think it will have that big of an impact. Similar to the Snowbird argument for CAN vs FLA teams. There are definitely Thrashers fans with a rooting interest, but Nashville and Winnipeg fans and media represent the vast majority and the interest isn't there.

IMO, Even if the on-ice rivalry heats up between the two, it would still have the least amount of potential fan interest vs potential interest in a rivalry with any other team in the division.

Of course that's not all bad. If there is just one team in the division that doesn't jive. Because like I said I think the Dallas rivalry would really blow up, and without Detroit to focus on, the St. Louis and Chicago rivalries would intensify.
