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!
The ultimate judges of what works best for the NHL are the ones with the millions at risk. Since the 4 conference setup seems to be the one thing they all agree on, I have to assume there is a very good reason for it.
