Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto


Atlantic:
Buffalo, New Jersey, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, Philadelphia, Pittburgh

Southeast
Carolina, Columbus, Florida, Nashville, Tampa Bay, Washington

Either run the season with 4xdivision+2xnon-division (78 games), or 6xdivision+2xnon-division (88 games). Increase roster maximum to 26 for the latter option.

Playoffs are seeded 1-16, with division winners receiving an automatic top-8 seed (but not guaranteed top 5). This allows for any potential series matchups to occur in any round, rather than the current situation which will never allow a Toronto/Montreal or Boston/Montreal finals, or any such rivalry series between close regional teams. Imagine the insanity in the Big Apple and the media if it were a New York (R) vs. New York (I) finals?
Excuse me?
