Common sentiment I've heard over the spread of games due to location is regarding time zones (ex: columubst/detroit playing very few away games within their timezone- thus crappier tv times/lower viewing numbers/ and all that comes with that) Nashvile is CST like the other teams in that area.
That's also why it's been Columbus over Detroit- that seems to get propped up by columbus "needing" it more then detroit (more eye balls, more marquee matches against "local" teams ie: Pittsburgh) even though Detroit is the "good soldier" of the NHL.
