I'm not rooting for it but it looks like the league would consider it. Still, I see the two FLA teams have surprising attendance numbers. FLA is 9th in attendance %. and TB is 7th in average attendance.
As for the west, Portland and Seattle are there waiting for hockey. Portland has the Rose Garden; 18k seats 70 Boxes. Seattle will might have an arena with the new basketball team.
Ahh,... the Florida teams were in the previous proposal as well. I wasn't referring to that. I was referring to what was preceived as the League's logic for leaving two 7-team Divisions in the East in the previous proposal, and now two 7-team Divisions in the West. In the first scenario, people said it screamed of two expansion teams coming in the East; now people are saying that it screams of two expansion teams coming in the West. Perhaps the League is schizophrenic.
