It's be very desperate to move a western team from phoenix and dropping it into the eastern canada.

Also looking at the 4 conference proposal and it's dam near obvious the plan is for 32 teams. Winnipeg will be in the west next season so it's hard to imagine, this change not being followed through.

It's not the NHL's job to promote hockey in Canada.
