Keeping all games within each conference gives the Eastern Conference teams a big advantage over their Western counterparts.

This is almost three times as far as the New Jersey Devilsí 11,659 miles (17,703 kilometres), the lowest in the league. The Devils and everyone else in the Atlantic Division will be able to sleep in their own beds most nights, which is the envy of the Western teams.
IIRC, the Wild won't have long road streaks, though. In number of games. Maybe that balances it a bit.
