This doesn't really solve any travel problems for the northwest div, except that there would be more games north, rather than going down to Colorado. This more so helps travel and getting Winnipeg in the division, not time zone games. It really helps Colorado in travel as well.
This makes, in my opinion, the pacific division a lot lighter for travel. Dallas gets many more games closer to their time zone and distance wise it helps them as well.
This will make the central division have a bit more travel. No real upside for the division as a whole, just Dallas.
Northeast Division remains stable.
Southeast gets rid of Winnipeg, and keeps very sheltered travel schedule in tact.
Atlantic div remains stable.
Also, Columbus ad Nashville could switch spots, really.
All in all, I think the only division this doesn't help to some extent is Central...and they are probably the worst as it is, so I don't know if this is really that viable.
