Don't get too excited -- yet -- about the possibility of the Red Wings moving to the NHL's Eastern Conference as part of a proposed realignment for next season.

CBC's Elliotte Friedman reported Saturday night that the Wings and Columbus Blue Jackets could be moving east. He said the Wings would be in a division with Boston, Buffalo, Florida, Montreal, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Toronto.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Saturday he had not heard anything from the NHL about Detroit moving east and declined to discuss the matter again before Sunday's 8-3 win over Vancouver.

The Red Wings have long sought to move to the Eastern Conference, and being in a division with three other Original Six teams would be a bonus.

Now, the Wings and Blue Jackets are the only Eastern time zone teams in the Western Conference. Travel has been a big concern for the Wings, especially during the playoffs. And staying up for late face-offs for road games in the West also have been a burden for fans.
