I think they want to find a fix that preserves some degree of flexibility to tweak the system later (shift PHX/QC to the east) without having to do another wholesale rearrange.

Any plan needs at least 20 votes--and the 15 teams in the West see this as an opportunity to fix long-standing inequities in the league schedule.
Wouldn't it make some sense to shift Colorado and Winnipeg there though. It would make Dallas a little less screwed travel wise, and the Colorado-Detroit rivalry could perhaps pick up again, while I assume Winnipeg wouldn't mind being in the same division as Edmonton and Calgary.
