Just wondering, do teams in the Western half of the US in other sports leagues whine about travel as much as the ones in the NHL?
It's only really a similar factor in the NBA since MLB only has fifteen or so road trips in a year (and almost half the schedule is in-division games so not as much travel), and in the NBA you have pockets of teams in the Central/South/West that you don't have in the NHL.
How many NBA teams are really going to be complaining about their IN-division travel the way NHL teams do? They have three Texas teams, four California teams, etc.
