Maybe it's been karma winning for Detroit all these years, being the only team, other than Columbus(even karma has its limits), having to shoulder such a burden. In 1998, Toronto got out of what was the Western Conference by another name, and they've hit a pretty bad part of their history since then. Not right away, but eventually it happened.
There are just too many issues to make 3 divisions work in the West, no matter how the round peg gets forced into the square hole.
