You're kidding yourself if you really think that's true, or it's just a cop out argument.
Those rivalry matchups which would exist even without being in the same Division are the all-Canadian ones. The other cross border matchups should just simply be fostered, so that it doesn't actually just become a Canadian - US separate fanbase thing. Imagine if that idea grew bigger, the League would be hating, even more than it already does, all-Canadian Finals (or all-US Finals hated in Canada) because the fans on both sides of the border would care even less about those teams on the other side.
