Yeah, I think that's where my train of thought is headed. Here in the east, it's pretty clear that fans are heading into the rink to see divisional rivals, but perhaps elsewhere, and particularly in places where attendance needs to improve, fans will be lured by more non-divisional games. I have to think that someone, somewhere, has done some kind of research and analysis on this, right? .... right?

Oh yeah, this is the NHL we're talking about.
