I've seen proposals in a couple of places to make 4 divisions and get rid of the conferences. You have two divisions of 8 teams and two of 7. Everyone plays everybody in the other three divisions twice (44 or 46 games). The 7 team divisions play everyone in their division 6 times. The 8 team divisions play 3 of their 7 division opponents 6 times and play the other 4 5 times.

You get a good geographic lineup:

Pacific and Mountain Time teams (8):

Vancouver
San Jose
Los Angeles
Anaheim
Phoenix
Calgary
Edmonton

Mountain & Central Time teams (7):

Colorado
Winnipeg
Minnesota
Chicago
St. Louis
Nashville
Dallas

Eastern Time Teams North (8)

Ottawa
Montreal
Toronto
Boston
Buffalo
NYR
NYI
New Jersey

Eastern Time Teams South (8):

Detroit
Columbus
Pittsburgh
Philadelphia
Washington
Carolina
Tampa Bay
Florida
