Yes, but Washington and Carolina are also closer to the likes of Toronto and Boston than the two Florida teams are. And Toronto and Boston are further for the two Florida teams than New York and Philadelphia for example.
There is no winning, because they want to keep every team in the Atlantic together while adding Washington to the mix. It would hurt if they moved the Rangers and the Devils to the North East, thus splitting up the Islanders-Rangers rivalry and also the rivalry with the other Atlantic teams/Rivalries.
