If you consider a presidential election analogy, I'm sure the democratic party certainly hopes their competition is weaker than their candidate in the next election.

I just don't see how those powerful owners who seem to be the most influential would want to bring another team into their conference that create a more direct threat to their win records. The Eastern Conference already has their share of good draws in the conference. Detroit leaving the West hurts more than what the East gets in return.
