from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,
While these divisions do make people like Dallas, Minnesota, Detroit and Columbus happy, they also seem to invite peril for the future. What if Phoenix eventually has to move, and the best location is to move to the East? What if you want expansion teams, and the best locations are in the East? Are you really going to send Detroit or Columbus over there for a couple of years and then toss them right back in the West?
And, seriously, Florida and Tampa with Ottawa and Toronto?
Yeah, if I’m the players, I have all sorts of problems with this set-up.
So why haven’t we seen other options? You and I can think up a few right now. How about a minor tweak of the current system that is designed to patch a few holes, but also leave the door open for bigger changes in a year or two?
Would you have a problem with this:
