They keep all their rivalries. And get to play them more - it's all about $$. The Florida teams got thrown under the bus and told that the extra $ coming from selling out games against the snowbird teams makes up for it.

This time the 8 team conferences are in the east rather than the west. It looks like they traded the worse travel out west for the decreased chances of playoffs in the east. And the goal is to keep the largest possible number of games within 1 time zone of each team, which makes sense. If/when they expand in 2 years it'll screw everything up again most likely.
