Like I said, if they do league-wide home-and-home games, it takes most of the needs for divisions and gets rid of them.

I say just do this:

WEST - 15 teams
- VAN, EDM, CGY, COL, WPG, MIN, SJS, ANA, LAK, PHX, DAL, STL, CHI, NSH, one of DET or CBJ

EAST - 15 teams
- MTL, BOS, OTT, TOR, BUF, NYI, NYR, NJD, PIT, PHI, WSH, FLA, TBL, CAR, one of DET or CBJ

Schedule:

- 29 home-and-home series against all NHL teams (58 games)
- remaining games within conference (24 games)

Playoff Seeding:

- Top 8 teams in each conference make the playoffs

Pretty simple, takes care of the whole travel issue, and each team plays every other team at home.
