I haven't heard anything about this before just seeing a small rumor on ESPN.
Apparently, if the potential Thrashers move (which Bettman has denied) happens, realignment could bring the Wings to the Eastern Conference. I'm not an insider, so I can't read the story, but that's what the headline says.
I, for one, would completely support it. Getting to play the Penguins more would make that more of a rivalry, and game times / travel schedule would make the playoffs much easier on the fans and the players. Not to mention, it would probably be an easier path to the finals.
Anyone think this could actually happen?
