Yes, yes, oh no you're separating the Pennsylvania teams... but you're keeping a whole lot of other rivalries intact. Plus, other rivalries are broken up, like Chicago and Detroit. Moreover, there are 16 ETZ teams and they can all be in two conferences.
I think its more about balancing the hockey markets, smaller markets like florida and tampa to an extent could really benefit from a relevant division. Think about Northeast vs Southeast, one division has all bigger markets and one has all smaller markets (before winnipeg came in)
