If you pull in Tampa and Florida, which team would agree to move out of your conference? Carolina?
Most likely: addition in KC, Columbus --> our division, IMO.

Less likely: addition in GTA might force either CAR or (less likely) PIT to northeast and drive FLA / TB to us.

Least likely: straight addition to our conference. I just don't see it. Hartford is years and a new arena away, and there is really no reason to add to NYC or Philly markets. Baltimore is mostly caps / flyers. I suppose a third try in Atlanta could end up in our conference, but I can't see that in the near future.
