Swarm Moving to the Western Conference

According to NLL Insider the Swarm are going to be heading to the Western Conference with the addition of the Boston Blazers. This makes the conferences look like this:

Eastern Conference: Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Rochester, Toronto (7 teams)

Western Conference: Minnesota, Calgary, Edmonton, San Jose, Portland, Colorado (6 teams)

This makes absolute sense in the terms of the league. Minnesota is the western most team in the eastern conference. With the addition of the Blazers, there would have been 8 teams in the Eastern Conference and 5 in the Western. With the shift, there is now 7 and 6.

The Swarm will play a heavy Eastern Conference field to keep the rivalries that they have made including the Bandits.
