Living out east, I don't think you guys get a fair shake in the media coverage out here as it is. Pull the Red Wings into the east and it will just further reinforce the notion in the big eastern media markets that the NHL is an eastern league first & foremost with a western appendix stuck onto it. The Canadian teams will be fine, and the Blackhawks will be fine, but I think the rest of the western teams will tend to get overlooked, especially if the schedule reverts to a division-heavy one.
