Yes, the Wild would still have to go to Canada for three of their division games, but Winnipeg >>>>>>Vancouver.
Dallas would also play teams closer to their time zone.
Vancouver would as well. They wouldn't get to play all the Canadian teams as much, but again, they would be closer in their timezones.
I suggested this earlier and got panned for it. If Detroit moves east, that seriously cuts down on air time for A LOT of teams.
If I remember my spreadsheet correctly, it drops Vancouver's travel time the least, but still by about 10k miles. San Jose, the team with the absolute WORST travel year to year, drops down significantly...
I'll have to either find my spreadsheet or make it from scratch again.
