Not going to lie, having to root against them now is going to be pretty emotionally tough. Like watching your parents divorce and then having them ask you who you want to live with. Clearly I'm "Sens to the core", but it doesn't make the decision any less scarring.
I'm a Wings fan too, and there are some positive here:
(a) We will have greater exposure to the Wings
(b) The Wings will beat the Leafs more often
(c) The chances of the Wings or Sens making the playoffs are now higher
