Toronto was the same situation. They didn't care. Why would Detroit?
The only reason I can see that Detroit stayed in the west when Toronto left was because the only other team that might have been in the west was Atlanta, since I think Atlanta is further west than Detroit or Columbus, or at least real close to it. Plus, of course, the NE and Atlantic wanted their divisions. Which is why as soon as the Thrashers left Atlanta, everything seemed to be up for grabs.
