I agree with this. And I think most of the teeth-gnashing about Detroit leaving the Central are from fans, not ownership.
If rivalries are lost, new ones will be created....Sure, right now the Red Wings are a big draw for Nashville and St Louis, but I'm old enough to remember when they sucked and weren't a draw at all (back in 70's and 80's). These things are cyclical.
Right now, I think Chicago is a bigger draw then the Red Wings are anyways.
