Just put Columbus in the East and Winnipeg in the West. Call it a day...
Its not that simple. Columbus I am sure might like it but for a team who is struggling financially, they like when there rivals come in like Chicago and Detroit.

Detroit has been asking to be in the eastern conference for YEARS.

Nashville is literally in the Southeast.

Dallas hates having to travel 3 hours by plane and into a different time zone to play DIVISION games. Could you imagine the Rangers having to play Detroit on Friday and then fly back to play Philadelphia at home on Saturday REGULARLY? That's what Dallas has to do.

Washington wants to stop flying to Florida all the time.

Winnipeg should be in the West.

There are a lot of teams who have legitimate gripes and the league was trying to fix as many of them in one swoop as possible. Just because it doesn't effect the Rangers all that much doesn't mean there aren't legitimate problems for quite a few teams.
