To the Left or to the Right?


Assuming (you know what they say about assume, make an ass out of you and I look good) that Phoenix nor any other financially struggling NHL does not move next season, an obvious move is that Winnipeg will move to the Western Conference.  That requires a move by a Western Conference team to the East.  Three candidates have emerged as candidates to move Eastward:

  • Detroit
  • Columbus
  • Nashville

Debates will rage on about which team deserves to go and all, but I don't care about the whys.

 

Let's assume (oh crap!) that the Predators are moved and directly replace the Thrashjets in the Southeast division.  What are your feelings on this?  Topics to include:  Losing a one-side perceived rivalry with the Red Wings, Blackhawks, Blues, etc.; gaining new "rivalries" with Capitals, Hurricanes, Lightning and Panthers; playing in the East; making the Southeast stronger or weaker; more television exposure with increased play against Sidney Crosby, Alex OvechkinSteven Stamkos; increasing the possibilities of moving further in the playoffs in a supposedly weaker conference.

 

Discuss.
