Seriously, why are they making this so hard?
Just to isolate Nashville for a moment, a move to the East would mean that they would be the lone franchise in the Conference not to be in the Eastern Time Zone. That would mean many 7:00 p.m. games would be a 6:00 local start time. Columbus, meanwhile, would in the Eastern time zone yet remain in the Western Conference.

Oddities have precedence, however, and for different reasons: Detroit is slightly further East than Atlanta which meant a potential Thrashers-Red Wings Cup Finals would have a more Eastern team representing the West and a more Western team in the East.
