The only thing would be to make sure you keep some of the great rivalries that would now be outside the 4-team divisions (some extra Boston-Montreal games, some extra Pittsburgh-Philadelphia games), but that's doable in my opinion.
You would think that these Canadian teams would like this, but at further inspection, the time zones would suck. Also they are not really "rivals" at the moment, that is reserved for teams you meet in the playoffs. How would the playoffs and round even work? Do teams only have to beat out two other teams?
