Well, Red Wings are going to draw, basically, no matter what. If fan support were to drop, it wouldn't be because of alignments or anything of that nature, it'd be because of a severe drop in quality of play. Now, there MIGHT be something to what you're saying here, but I seriously doubt it would be to a significant degree in order to justify upending the status quo.
