I say he still would be more afraid from losing some ticket revenue than bodily harm. The look about him says it all. PLEASE DON'T HURT MY POCKETBOOK!!! <_<

Keep joining up and we are still looking for people to put forward some effort to keep this continuing. We have to make the league know the Fans demand this!

The Facebook group is Move Detroit East.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I think what the NHL is going to do is move Nashville east, then slide Minnesota into the Norris. It is just the easiest way for them to do it. Detroit is too much of a cash cow, and the NHL needs that in the Campbell when you have teams there like Phoenix, Anaheim, Edmonton and Dallas that really don't make as much as say New York, Boston, and Montreal.

Just my opinion on it.

I swear to god if after the dust settles the Wings don't get to the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League I am going to turn into Homer Simpson as Angry Dad and walk over to the NHL offices and choke Bettman like he does Bart.

Well I spent my free time today tweeting, writing, and organizing. It is a real shame no one seems to want to join and actually speak up to improve the Red Wings chances. Instead you would rather complain that it isn't going to happen. I just don't see how you can't think you can influence things.


Bus Boycotts ended segregation!

Twitter took out governments!

Grassroot campaigns have affected politics!

Why do you refuse to think you can get a team to change conferences???

Ummm Brown V. Board overturned Plessy v. Ferguson.

A bunch of pissed off people took out the Egyptian government, some of them just so happened to have Twitter.

Grassroots campaigns do sometimes do something, just ask President Ralph Nader.

I refuse to believe that we can force them to move Detroit to the east for the same reasons why I believe that the bankers that screwed us all just got a slap on the wrist. Money talks and bulls*** walks. The NHL is in business to make money, and it would be more lucrative for them to keep Detroit in the West, no matter what you and your buddies on here think.

If Phoenix gets moved some where east, it all is moot. That is one reason why they are waiting the year.

And even if someone comes out west and they have to move someone they still have Columbus in addition to Nashville like I said prior to move over us. I don't think we are high on the list to go at all, we are really good, and make tons of money. So we have to stay to help out the entire Western half of the NHL.

They are waiting because they almost have the schedule done already and restructuring would mess that all up.

I hope it never happens. Eastern conference is weaker; don't want our players to pick up bad habits.
I will happily stay up late for games. Much rather do that than have to watch game after game after game of playing the Penguins.

detroit going to the east is not whats best for hockey. so i dont see it happening nor do i want it to happen. preds to southeast and wild to norris makes the most sense. i know the late starts suck, but thats life.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

I don't like the idea of Wings moving to the East for personal reasons. I like the late games this means I can get my Homework done before I listen to them play.

Yea I think this from the link I provided says it all:

But if the Wings do get to go, this is how Stubits sees it shaking out:

You likely aren't going to send (the Wings) to the Southeast, so some shuffling will be needed. Most likely scenario would be putting the Wings in the Northeast with Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Buffalo, dropping Boston into the Atlantic and moving either Pittsburgh or Philadelphia to the Southeast. Surely you see the downsides in that. Bruins-Habs in separate divisions? Breaking up the Keystone State rivals? Really, there's no way that makes much sense to put the Wings in the East while keeping important battles going without just dropping them in the Southeast -- which, again, makes little sense. So it might still happen, but I'm thinking sorry Detroit, you're stuck where you are.


Edit: Moving the Wings East means way to much change in the Divisions, and makes one conference rich, the other one poor. However, I won't try and stop anyone trying to voice their opinion to Bettman.
