As long as the playoffs don't end up being division playoffs. Bad enough that the Atlantic division just beats the **** out of itself for 82 games leading up to the damn pissoffs. Just look at how it played out last year.

If Detroit moves East, they lose Chicago but gain Toronto back, a trade-off I think they'd be happy with.
I think Quebec and Seattle are the two teams. Atlanta isn't getting a team after two flops and I never saw the point of a second Toronto team. The Leafs have been around forever. Not a lot of fans are going to up and convert.

Either way, expansion is stupid. There are so many teams that can't sell tickets as is. How about the league marketing the sport first? It's the 4th or 5th most recognized sport in the US depending on where you rank the MLS. I'm no PR expert, but I feel like the NHL does nothing to promote itself to the average person.

Mike Rupp traded from NYR to Devils West Minnesota for Darroll POWE RIGHT IN THE KISSER and former Devil Nick Palmieri.

Can't wait for Napalm to score multiple goals against us next October and then be run out of the league by December.

That's actually a solid deal for the Rags.

Powe is already a upgrade over Rupp and Napalm is just a bonus for their AHL roster. I always hated Rupp, even when he played for us, so I might be a little bias here.

Also in retrospect Napalm is one of the most hilariously inappropriate nicknames I've ever actually used.
