To be fair, it really doesn't matter where the expansions are. They could be Mexico City and Saskatchewan and the base premise still holds.

The advantage of a 4 conference, 8 division format is that it's very pliable in terms of travel. You're mostly concerned about teams within your division for travel, with secondary concern for conference

Every team plays every other team home and home so the travel is the same there. Then you play conference opponents home and away again so it's good to have those closer. Then you play division opponents home and away on top of that so you want them even closer.
