I've got a brother-in-law in Seattle who isn't a hockey fan, but he really enjoyed watching the Hawks and the Wings.
Wings moving to the east might be bad for ratings, but it will really help Wings fans that can't stay up for 10:30pm games.
The west wouldn't have been so bad if they could start the games at 9:00PM ET. Maybe even compromise with the west coast by starting games hosted in Detroit at 8:30PM, which would be 5:30 their time.
However, I'm more than happy to move to the east. I think the rivalries with Toronto and Boston are going to be awesome.
