I'd vie for the two leagues so the Canadian teams can be evenly distributed. Also, it may be easier for expansion because the geography of the new teams do not matter, provided they annex in even numbers.
Because it is apparently crippling to expect teams in the eastern and central time zones to have 10-12 games a year end at 11:30/12:30. You get the impression if at all possible they'd make us start all the games no later than 5PM, just like they did during the Stanley Cup - they want the $$ from the northeast tv markets. That's what's driving all of this.
