A bit OT - Not sure why people keep lumping Pitt with the NY trio + Philly. Historically the Pens have always been the outsider. 1st they start in the expansion 6 division then when the NHL expands again did they put Pittsburgh with Philly? Nope. When the 2nd major realignment occurs the Pens get put with the NY trio + Philly as a marriage of convenience as there was no where else to put them. The 3rd major realignment puts the Pens in a different division as they were the "8th" wheel. The last major realignment was again a marriage of convenience alignment as there was no where else to put them.
So after that I don't see why you couldn't put the SE 4 with the NY trio + Philly then going with the NE + Pitt, Que, and Tor2/Mark.
If they can separate NY from Boston then Pitt can be separated from Philly.
