The bottom line is 2 for 24 on the power play is not gonna cut it. We have to be better & having Datsyuk back will help. If we haven't been perfect on the PK so far, these games wouldn't be so close, and we'd be back to blaming Jimmy.
I agree, think about it. How would another team in Detroit go??? Or Boston & Chicago for that matter. If the NHL wants to keep any face at all, you pay respect to the original 6. And proposing another team in any of those markets is a BIG mistake. The original 6 is the calling card of the league, with the fan base to support it. Dilute or pollute that, and you create a mess.
