Ten Western Conference teams will not see Eric Staal flourish in his third NHL season, marvel at Cam Ward's athletic ability or count the minutes the seemingly ageless Rod Brind'Amour spends on the ice each night. Here in North Carolina, fans will not have the chance to view NHL stars like Joe Sakic, Jarome Iginla, Ryan Smyth, Nicklas Lidstrom, Pavel Datsyuk and Miikka Kiprusoff up close. Doug Weight will not make a return to Carolina, nor will the Hurricanes make a trip to St. Louis. This is a tragedy. And it's a major hurdle in reestablishing the NHL as one of the four major sports leagues in the United States.read on... I did a little research on the Wings schedule- 32 of their 41 road games are in a different time zone, including a 3 hour difference numerous times, making for many a late game for those in the Eastern Time Zone. I am sure many other Western Conference teams have the same issues.
