Okay, so, the NHL likes geography, so lets go with the Four Cardinal Directions:

North:
Winnipeg
Minnesota
Chicago
Detroit
Toronto
Buffalo
Ottawa
Montreal

West:
Edmonton
Calgary
Vancouver
San Jose
Los Angeles
Anaheim
Phoenix
--Empty--

South:
Colorado
Dallas
St. Louis
Nashville
Tampa Bay
Florida
Carolina
Columbus

East:
Boston
NY Rangers
NY Islanders
New Jersey
Pittsburgh
Philadelphia
Washington
--Empty--

Everyone gets screwed on travel except the eastern division, but realistically there is no way to screw over that area without doing something totally deliberate.

Expansion slots left open in two divisions for Seattle and someplace in the East. If Phoenix moves to Quebec City, some reshuffling will need to be done, but whatever.

Oh, and every division except the West gets exposure in the eastern time zone, thus working to eliminate some east coast bias.
