San Jose would be the nearest divisional at 1,580 km and they would require customs. The one advantage is that the other Pacific teams are relativily close together (a 4 game road trip wouldn't be that bad) and they're all in the same time zone.

Does anyone know how long it takes to fly from Vancouver to San Jose & Los Angeles?
I know how Vancouver would feel. They'd be pissed. As would Detroit. If there was a simple solution to the probem then the league would have gone with it. The reason they went for a radical change was because they could not reach a simple a solution.
