It would also avoid the chance of any US based team being 'alone' with four or more Canadian based teams.
so seattle and quebec get expansion teams...

western conference:

vancouver
edmonton
calgary
winnipeg

seattle
san jose
anaheim
la

phoenix
dallas
colorado
minnesota

detroit
chicago
columbus
st louis

eastern conference:
toronto
ottawa
montreal
quebec city

boston
rangers
islanders
devils

philadelphia
pittsburgh
buffalo
washington

florida
tampa
carolina
nashville


top team in each division gets seeds 1-4...
