I dig the new alignment.

We lose a couple of Wings dates, but more than make up for it in guaranteed yearly visit from big draws like the Pens, Philly, Rangers, Leafs, Boston, etc.

While Preds fans think the Red Wings are a rival, to DRW fans we're like 3rd on the list (maybe even lower).

Less PTZ games are great! As an ETZ based fan, those games might as well not even be happening. And it never made sense for us to play someone like Vancouver more than someone like Washington or Carolina.

I don't even see a downside in the potential playoff plan. Familiarity breeds hate. Does anyone hate the Coyotes? Does anyone hate the Canucks? No, but run into someone like St. Louis or Dallas once or twice in the playoffs - it will add new meaning to rivalry.
