Remember when everyone complained that the Wings travel too much, playoffs were taking a toll on them because of all the travel? Now folks want them back in the west? No thanks!

It's not like moving to the east made them stink, and moving them back wouldn't make them Cup favorites again, they'd be even worse in the West. It's the coaching and Ken Holland refusal to move on from "loyal" vets in years past and rewarding them with stupid contracts that has made them stink. Moving back west would be the wrong thing to do. If you want more Chicago rivalry's then move them to the East and Columbus West. We could have an 8 team division that consists of Detroit, Chicago, Rangers, Boston, Montreal, Toronto and then any other 2 teams (Florida, Tampa, Ottawa, Carolina?) to round it out. Original 6 rivalries would be heightened!

IMO, Detroit vs. any one of Toronto, Montreal, Boston is much better than Detroit vs. St. Louis, Nashville or the new Av's.

Again, No thank you!

It's winning and being a dominant team for 25 years that's made them stink, currently. Haven't we been over this at least 2 dozen times?

Am I the only one who thinks that had it not been the 3 hour time difference at times in the playoffs that the Wings would have won more Cups? I truly believe that they were at times so gassed from having to play teams outside of their time zone that it cost them in the playoffs.

I doubt the time difference ever had much of an impact on the Wings winning or losing, but it is the main (only) reason, I'd hate to see them back in the West. Those 11:30-12:00 starts on those west coast trips were f***ing brutal... I'd prefer they stay in the East, and luckily for me, they won't be moving back.

Yeah, Newfoundland time zone is the worst... "early games" are 8:30 start here. If you want to stay up to watch a "late game", it's 11:30 or 12:00 start... I miss the days living out west, and I'd get off work at 4:30 and rush home for the 5:00 Wings game...

Option #2.  Selfishly - Now that they are in the East, by the time I get my kids to bed most games are in the 3rd period.  I kind of miss the days when we were in the West and I could settle-in at 9-10 PM and have a few beers and watch the full games in peace (no distractions from children).
