Would you rather have us in a division with the Hawks, Pens and Bruins or something?
And those reject teams are who we're playing against now.
Plus Minnesota, Dallas and Winnipeg.
That's my point. Technically, travel wise the Wings made out okay. But other than the Hawks, none of those teams are consistently good. Which means each and every year we will play the Hawks and the other round will rotate. Nothing changes. I think a lot of us wanted to see Original 6 matchups with real rivalries instead of the fake rivalries we've been fed for years.
Not a terrible realignment, just not really all that different for the Wings other than some shorter travel.
