That old proposal really does make sense. It was speculated that the reason the NHLPA rejected the proposal last season was for a bargaining chip going into the new CBA. With that setup, it sets up for expansion to 32 teams in the league. If you believe what they say about Detroit being promised to be put in the east, I wouldn't be surprised to see them end up in our conference.
With something looking like this after expansion.
Conference A
Anaheim
Calgary
Colorado
Edmonton
Los Angeles
Phoenix(Seattle?)
San Jose
Vancouver

Conference B
Chicago
Columbus
Dallas
Minnesota
Nashville
St. Louis
Winnipeg
Expansion team

Conference C
Boston
Buffalo
Florida
Montreal
Ottawa
Quebec?
Tampa Bay
Toronto

Conference D
Carolina
Detroit
New Jersey
New York Islanders
New York Rangers
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Washington
