If they bid expansion out, at least one of the teams is going to be a Canadian market in the Eastern Time zone. Probably both. Okay, so what now? We just kick Columbus back out to the Western Conference? Or hope they've relocated in the time between?
Detriot obviously isn't going to be kicked back anywhere, so I guess we'd have to have a Toronto team in the EC and a Toronto team in the WC.
It is not thought out well at all. Fairest system would be 8-7-8-7, the system last year was the most logical looking at where your new markets were going to be in the future.
