Yeah, but really, its not like the Wings have suffered greatly because of the move into the western conference, so to me, its like we've been suffering with the travel schedule alone anyways. Easily countered with the "well-run" organization comment but its still not totally without merit in my mind.

A healthier bottom line, and a strong show of committment to the Columbus market would be the best thing we could take from a move east, for a league thats been very flaky on the Phoenix issue, I'm worried about the team's future stability despite the Arena deal if this team stays in the "west"
