I don't get all this major realigning anyway. Just move Nashville or St. Louis here and put Winnipeg in the Northwest, move Minnesota into the Central. Seems pretty simple to me.
The travel distances for Tampa and Florida make it 'equal' (to the western conference situation) but not fair, and I think that's a distinction that needs to be made.
Detroit seems to be the troublemaker.
It would all be so much simpler if Detroit would just accept that they are geographically in the western half of the league.
Somebody's gonna get shafted with any realignment where Detroit goes east. In the one above, they don't, which sort of defeats the whole purpose of league realignment.
I think, secretly, the league wants to expand, or they wouldn't even consider uneven divisions.
