Wouldn't Winnipeg prefer to be with the other Canadian teams from the west? Remember back in the '80s/90s the Jets were rival with every Western Canadian teams, almost as much as Quebec vs Montreal.
As for the two Fla teams being in the Northeast I don't mind. While travel costs would increase, the increased amount of sellouts from snowbirds would counter that.
Also there's no way we can split Boston from Montreal or Pittsburg from Phidalelphia. Those are some of the biggest rivalries right now. As for Toronto vs Montreal I guess that wouldn't be as much of an issue as it used to be decades ago. That might be a different story if, one day, Toronto ever makes the playoffs again, though.
