But as noted time zones are not the issue. And I'd think Winnipeg would have a much easier time developing rivalries with teams that are much closer to it. And Nashville hasn't been around long enough to worry about rivalries. Don't see either of these issues being in play here.

Now I don't see why Detroit would be in such a rush to get away from Chicago, but it still makes the most sense.
