Toronto moved to the Eastern Conference prior to the 1998-1999 season, 2 years before Columbus started playing. Part of the reason for their move is they wanted more games to be played against Montreal, however that was also the same year Nashville came into the league and they replaced Toronto in Central Division which made things easier.
