And is it really great of TV? Fans of those teams should be watching the games anyways.
Detroit has been the silent, happy camper for to long. Watching a significant portion of your team's games and playoff games at 10:30 isnt fair to their fans. Detroit is closer to Buffalo and Toronto than it is to Chicago. It's made little sense they play these teams rarely anymore. Hell, they're closer to Toronto than any other team and have a storied rivalry with Toronto. That btw, was promised to continue when Toronto was moved east. They were promised 3 games a year and that lasted about a year.
There is nothing wrong with the new format. It's about as good as they could've come up with. The Florida teams are taken care of with their financial concerns and Columbus is also taken care of.
