from David Pollak of hte Mercury News,
General manager Doug Wilson said Friday the Sharks are hoping to see two things in whatever realignment plan the NHL ends up when the board of governors tackles the contentious topic at its meetings next week in Pebble Beach.
• A home-and-home series every season between Western and Eastern conference teams, something that would mean an additional six road games in cities with a three-hour time difference.
• The continued presence of the Detroit Red Wings in the Western Conference.
The Sharks’ desire to keep Detroit in the conference is no surprise because the teams have developed a strong rivalry with five postseason clashes. But supporting added trips across the continent may not seem to be in San Jose’s best competitive or financial interests.
