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.
They are overlooked in the East now and it is always going to be like that because their home games during the week start at 10/10:30 eastern, so people living in the east aren't watching anyway. Just like I am sure there aren't many people in California watching too many Rangers or Isles games because they start at 4/4:30.
