Honestly right now any way you slice the realignment it's going to be unfair to west teams because of how far the teams are spread apart.


Do you have a better solution in mind?
Why couldn't they have just had two conferences, and split each one into two divisions?

Conference I
Division A
Carolina
Columbus
New Jersey
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Washington

Division B
Boston
Buffalo
Florida
Montreal
Ottawa
Tampa Bay
Toronto


Conference II
Division C
Chicago
Dallas
Detroit
Minnesota
Nashville
St. Louis
Winnipeg

Division D
Anaheim
Calgary
Colorado
Edmonton
Los Angeles
Phoenix
San Jose
Vancouver


15 teams per conference. Winner of each division gets an automatic playoff berth. Spots 3-8 are determined by record. This would be much more fair because the top 8 teams from both conferences make the playoffs.
