The dividers in the divisions are for scheduling.
If the NHL wants to keep the "home and home with everyone" concept, you'd play the three others in your group 6 times, and the other group in the division 4 times each. Everyone else 2 each = 82 games
I have to say that for a 4-Division setup, I like your Division-divider concept to adapt to the scheduling. That's excellent.
But another option would be to just go with 4-team Divisions to begin with, with each Division having one other Division in which it plays against all those teams 4 times.
As for the actual alignment, well that's another issue.
