Yep, and no way do you separate Detroit and Chicago.

Detroit sucks and they are so close by don't split them up.
I want CLTV / CLTV HD on direct tv.

Toronto is closer to Detoit than Chicago. Moving Detroit would have five of the original six in the east. Detroit moves east (if Islanders, Panthers and Coyotes stay put.........).

My bad for not remembering Wings fans that have moved to the warm weather climates of the South. Yes they are everywhere. Local TV revenue would be up for FOX Sports Detroit if Detroit is in the east. Everyone should hope that the Coyotes find a way to stay in Phoenix; Quebec City would love to have them. Unfortunately there will always be teams from the Eastern/ Central time zones in the Western Conference. Teams in the Western Conference will still complain about the travel schedules that the Eastern Conference enjoy. JMHO and 2 cents.

Winnipeg sold out their seasons tickets in a few minutes after the pre-sale to former AHL season ticket holders. That means a full house for every game. Well above what the Thrashers ever had on a regular basis, which was no where near 13k per game. People who bought season tickets have to sign an commitment to buy their seat for 3 to 5 years, depending on which section. These are full priced seats with no discounts unlike in Atlanta. After the sellout the waiting list is 8000 strong and you have to pay to be on that list. The 51 luxury boxes sold out too at around 200k per season. Hockey is a religion in Canada unlike the south where most wouldn't know what the blue line is for. Winnipeg will do very well, on the ice and financially.
