Pacific Division:

Central Division:
CHI DAL DET MIN NSH STL WPG

Pacific Division:
44 games (home and home against non-division teams)
38 games (six games against three teams; five games against four teams)

Central Division:
46 games (home and home against non-division teams)
36 games (six games against all teams in division)

Playoff format:
Conference qualification, divisional matchup
If four teams from each division qualify, it's 1v4 and 2v3 from each division
If six teams from one and two from the other qualify, its 1v6, 2v5 and 3v4 in one division and 1v2 in the other.
If five teams from one and three from the other, its 1v5, 2v4 in one division, 3 v 2 from other division, and 1v3 in the other division.

Eastern Conference:
Northeast Division:
BOS BUF CAR CLB MTL OTT TOR
Atlantic Division:
FLA NJ NYI NYR PHI PIT TB WAS

30 games against Western Conference
3 games each opponent out of division
4/5 games against in-division opponents

Playoffs:
Straight conference setup, EC Champ v 8, Div Winner 2 v 7, 3 v 6, 4 v 5, reseed for round 2
Little confused as to why the WC playoffs would employ that whole convoluted system but the EC playoffs would just be straight up normal.

Any reason why? # of teams in each conference is the same.. if its for travel reasons, then this isn't really solving the problem, it's just making it look nice
