You could try to create a rivalry between the two, but its not something they need to focus on. If Leafs and Habs could be split up for years, I dont think its an issue to split the Rangers and B's.

Plus, depending how the final two rounds work, they could play in the Cup Finals.
Dude, go back and read your history.
The Rangers and Bruins were the Yankees and Red Sox until the NHL foolishly removed them. The NHL is trying to improve ratings, NY and BOS SELL.
The NHL is the only sport dumb enough to not have them in the same division.

It solves all the problems.
Dallas is in the Central time zone.
Vancouver is in the Western time zone.

I don't understand nor see the need to re-invent the wheel just over precious TV start times. You people are making this an obsession.

Like no other sport has these issues and deals with it this foolishly. This is what happens in a national travel league...so deal with it. But don't make a system which to have perfect time starts you know have uneven conferences, uneven playoff seeding, and rivalries broken, JUST FOR PERFECT TV START TIMES.

I don't think TV START TIMES should be the NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.
IT CAN BE MITIGATED SHORT OF DOING A DUMB FOUR CONFERENCE SET UP!
