The folks it might hurt most would be the ones counting on getting a team that's better than expansion.... oh, yeah I can see that could hurt some...

I wonder if some Jets fans are still bitter they paid to watch the Eastern Conference Thrashers last season while the real/former Jets got into the WCFs against the eventual SC Champions. I suspect not though. The euphoria of having any NHL games to attend has got to outweigh a team's record, just as a 5 game losing streak, while nothing to sneeze at, easily falls within the boundaries of things that encompass "Hockey The Hard Way".

I think even a team that may or may not make the playoff is way better than an expansion that WILL NOT make it for at least three years.
