I'm going along with the general lin of thinking that it's good from a time-zone/travel perspexctive for both the players and the fans (especially those watching on TV).

Just too hard to say and too much in flux to discuss the competitiveness issue vis-a-vis the teams in the new division.

Personally, for my fan-dom, it's a little difficult. Having grown up in Pittsburgh I've been a Pens fan my whole life (I was born a year before that team). Flipping to a CBJ-first fan wasn't that difficult - Columbus had been my home for more than 10 years when the CBJ began play, and besides, the Pens were in the East, meaning there wasn't a significant amount of internal conflict. That'll obviously change - which is not to say there's a chance in hell I will ever revert to a Pens-first fan.

That said, I've got a built-in hatred for the Flyers, Rangers and Capitals that gives me a distinct advantage on some of you.
