This is another difference between fans of teams in the East and West.
A lot of fans in the East don't want to see anyone but teams in the East. If you limit it to the teams in the northeast corridor, all the better.
In the West, a lot of fans want to see Crosby come to town. They want to see the Ranger, or Bruin, or Canadien, or Leaf, or Flyer logo in their own building. It makes it seem like they're part of the NHL, because those players, and those franchises, are the NHL. They have all the history. They have all the prime time games. They have all the hype.
I get why you would say you have no desire to see Calgary, Edmonton, Phoenix, etc, go into NY to play the Rangers. I'm not saying it's wrong to say that either. It's just a clear difference in interests.
