(I love it here tho)

I can't imagine adjusting to a city like Nashville where the coldest it gets is freezing point. But ever since I found out Nashville is our sister city I want to visit there.
Don't visit Nashville in July or August if your not used to heat. It's around 90 here and with a 80% humidity. Your welcome anytime though. Just don't dress like most tourists do in long sleeve Western shirts, jeans, and boots. Noone that lives here really dresses that way contrary to what's in movies and TV. Plus you'll roast in those clothes in the summer or spring (it was 80 something today). In the winter the coldest That I have ever seen in 30 years is -1 I think. It rarely gets below 40.

Vancouver's weather isn't bad. It rarely snows/gets below 0 C...most of the winter is rainy, which is much better imo than ice/snow/etc.

It's quite nice in Spring, Summer, and well into Autumn as well.

Which makes it less of a hockey city than the other Canadian cities and northern US cities.

The west looks so bare compared to the east.

And as for cold weather, in Edmonton, -10C is decent in the winter (To me anyways). -15C to -20C is when it starts to get pretty cold. I still don't know how I survived that -40C streak we had here in November(I think). It baffles me still how the players survived the Heritage Classic

From the map, Nashville also looks like it should be in the East. Also, it's only now that things have been put into perspective, now I have a much clearer understanding of why hockey isn't big in the southwest area. Look at the teams, and look at how they are spread out. Wow.

If you look at the map, the 15 teams that are the furthest west, which includes Detroit, are in the Western Conference. So, there's really no other way to do it.

at Nashville,
at St. Louis,
in Vancouver,
at Minny,
at Philly,

in Vancovuer vs Montreal,
