This is all cyclical...back in the 80's the Oilers were the toast of the League.
Speaking as a Wild fan, I don't care about the East...what I care about is getting in with the Central (Chicago, St Louis, Winnipeg and Dallas)...I could give a rip if the Devils, or Hurricanes, or Sabres come to Minnesota.
You see, now if you're serious, why are so many hockey fans so regional and enemy-tribal? Do Minnesota fans in MLB not care about teams from the P/M&E Time Zones? The same goes for the NBA and the NFL.
