Moving more East teams West wouldn't make sense, but moving a team on the middle of the map East when they're one of two American teams that really holds the conference together financially would be foolish.

And I think they did use some of that logic considering they (The NHL in their proposal) had Florida and Tampa in a conference with the financial powerhouses. (TML/BOS/MON)
