This alignment is based on reducing travel and creating rivalry rather than focusing on time zones. Some teams are ultimately going to have to travel between different zones. There's no way around it.

WAS in the ATL keeps PIT and PHI together, and also gives a weak market division two strong market teams and makes the division more competative. BOS and MTL get's split up, but as I said, you can't have it all.

MIN are the losers in this proposal, but if there always is going to be a loser, the loser might as well be the team that last entered the league. One could swap COL and VAN if the focus where on time zones.
