Agreed, which is why I think HNIC's groupings make some sense.
Tampa and Florida get six markets that produce droves of snowbirds who would want to see their teams play.
If they change that, you're right that Tampa and Florida bleed to death, which, of course, would make moving them to Quebec and Toronto2 easier for potential buyers. I couldn't see either of them surviving in that case.
