Not to mention the same teams meeting up in the post season all the time.
A simpler (and more reasonable) solution is to simply keep the format we have now, while switching a few teams between conferences as I mentioned earlier.
Um, that's the point. Know why Boston and Montreal have such hatred for each other? Because prior to the current format, the two teams usually finished 1-2 in the Adams division and met repeatedly in the second round. The "Battle of Ontario" rivalry was ramped up because Toronto and Ottawa kept running into each other.
And whining about dominant teams in the division is meaningless. 5 years ago, Pittsburgh was the NHL's laughingstock.
