Do you really think that the league, after years of Detroit pleading with them to go back East, is going to put the Wings in the East and then yank them back out just a year or two later? Not happening.
This. Can you imagine how angry Detroit would be if QC got a team and they had to move into the new Midwest division after finally getting into the Eastern Conference?
I have to wonder if any relocation to QC was attempted that the Board of Governors would not allow it because of that very reason.
I understand many posters here think QC deserves to be the next city to get a relocated team, but keep in mind the NHL doesn't think like that.
