Vancouver is an original NHL expansion team, and have been around for 40 years. Winnipeg is a recently relocated team, and were originally a WHA team. Vancouver doesn't want to split from Edmonton and Calgary. If the league could've put Vancouver in the Pacific, it would've been done in 1998.
There's no way the important teams in the East want Nashville in the East. It's an hour behind. The East doesn't do 8pm.
