And let's be honest. The Hawks proposed conference looks to be the weakest conference, both now and in to the future. There is only one team in that conference that would be considered a consistent big spender and that is the Hawks.

Where look at where Detroit is going, there's more big money teams. Eventually Montreal and Toronto will right the ship and that will both make it harder for Detroit to make the playoffs - and also advance when they do.
Minnesota are also big spenders. Plus St. Louis isn't going anywhere for a long time and neither is Nashville.
