True enough.

But there's a reason why the NHL continues to market the East Coast teams. Larger viewing demographic and more excitement. Choosing between the Pens/Flyers and... really, any game out West... It's not even close. The West has been sucked dry of offense and it's just painful to watch games. And I'm not talking about just the Oilers. The Flames are just as bad. Vancouver, while better, is just a shell of the team from the last 2 years. You couldn't pay me to watch a potential Minnesota/St. Louis playoff matchup...
