The Malik Report

No news is no news regarding the Red Wings’ realignment hopes

MLive’s Ansar Khan reports that the Red Wings continue to hope that the NHL will eventually allow them to move to the Eastern Conference:

The Atlanta Thrashers appear destined for Winnipeg, but the move won’t enable the Detroit Red Wings to shift to the Eastern Conference—at least for the 2011-12 season.

“We’re not moving anywhere next year, that’s a fact,” Red Wings senior vice president Jimmy Devellano said Monday.

Could the Red Wings move to the East in 2012-13?

“We’ve got our fingers and toes crossed,” Devellano said.

The best way for the Wings to get to the East would be to say they don’t want to go.  Then Bettman would move them, thinking he was making them unhappy.

or point out that Columbus’ arena is only approximately 1.5 miles east of where Joe Louis is so the notion that they are that much farther east is trivial by all concerns.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
