The division is terrible when applied to common sense. You have two teams who are completely removed from the rest of the division, you actually have to pass an entire division to get to them. It makes more sense to take the two northernmost teams in the "Atlantic" conference and move them into into the northern one while adding Tampa to the Atlantic conference.
The division may be bigger money but Tampa is relying less and less on visiting fans as their own fanbase has swelled. It makes no sense to put them in a conference where the reasoning is "You don't have enough fans". It's insulting.
