People seriously need to stop suggesting Detroit to the East. As much as it makes geographical sense, it makes little financial sense, which is why they wont move.

A very valid point, which is why I always liked:

LEMIEUX DIVISION:

Penguins
Flyers
Rangers
Islanders
Devils
Capitals
Hurricanes

ORR DIVISION:

Bruins
Canadiens
Leafs
Senators
Sabres
*Panthers
Blue Jackets
Bolts
*Nordiques

GRETZKY DIVISION:

Oilers
Avs
Flames
Nucks
Kings
Sharks
Ducks
*Coyotes
*Seattle

HOWE DIVISION:

Wings
Hawks
Blues
Wild
Stars
Jets
Preds

* Denotes expansion or relocation.

Eliminate all that top four from each division crap and just make it two conferences with 15/16 teams, with the top eight going to the playoffs.

Division teams play each other FIVE times per year, Conference teams play each other TWICE per year, Non-Conference play each other ONCE per year. Leaving about a handful of games for rivals. (So Detroit gets an extra game against Toronto, Chicago against Vancouver, Boston against Vancouver, etc.)
