I wouldn't be surprised if Illitch and the BJ's owner (don't know who it is, sorry) were told, "We will put you in the east for now. However, if Quebec or Toronto/Hamilton/wherever in the east gets a team, then Detroit goes back to the west, and if they both get teams then Columbus goes back." Assuming all else is equal. So if Quebec gets an expansion team, but <insert any east team> moves West, then we will re-visit.
