However, it seems clearly every day that the east would prefer to have nothing to do with the west. A lot of ETZ teams would be just as happy to never have to play teams out of there Time Zone at all.
I don't get why you are so worried about fans in the eastern time zone being interested in teams out west? Do you think Rangers fans care if people in Calgary or LA are interested in their games? Do you think Sharks fans care if fans in Philadelphia are interested in their games?
