Prior to 1-8 conference seeding that started with 93-94 playoffs, this is exactly how it was in the NHL (Except instead of "conferences" they were "divisions"). And I bet if you go back and look at standings pre 93-94, you'll see this very issue come up. Point is, a "purist" would say that this is the way to go since it is exactly what the NHL did prior to 93-94.
