That's terrible. Panthers would never agree to that.

No box office draw in the division besides Boston.

People need to stop being so hung up on distances. There isn't much difference between a 1.5 hour flight and a 3 hour flight (in terms of player fatigue) as long as you aren't crossing time zones.
Distances matter for creating rivalries, which invokes passion in fans and creates games they want to see. Sure, the Panthers will have a bigger draw from Montreal and Toronto...but what's the draw for those teams? Even as a Panthers fan I can understand it's not the team everyone wants to see their team play...except in Tampa.
