Well if the schedule is home and home, Chicago not only has Detroit twice, but they also have an additional game against Boston, NYR, Pittsburgh, Philly, and Washington. Chicago
end up on NBC more often then they have been.
There's only one reason the Kings managed to break through the Big 7 and actually get a national game on NBC this year. Unless it happens again, I would guess LA won't be on NBC all that often.
Now with Detroit in with the eastern teams, there are so many more potential games for them on NBC. In addition to the next Winter Classic, you might even see Toronto on NBC a few extra times against Detroit. Although Saturday night on CBC, and Sunday afternoon on NBC don't go well together.
