I don't think it would have made a difference to be honest. Detroit still wins their three Cups - at least - in the East. While it may seem like Detroit would have it tougher in the East I don't think they would have. In the West they had Colorado, Dallas and to a lesser extent St. Louis. It was never easy to get out of that conference. In the East it was more or less just Jersey and Philly for a while. Lindros was hurt every other playoff anyway. Eventually Toronto became a threat to win and then Ottawa. I don't think it would have been any harder to get out of that conference. In many ways Colorado was superior to any other East team. I do think it may have cut down on the lousy teams making the final though from the East.
