What's wrong with an East vs West? Better to have cross country matchups in the Final than in the 3rd Round. Oh yea, you were hoping for a Final between New York and Boston, weren't you.
You know, if people really want the potential of an All-east Final, then the NHL should have some semblance of an MLB/NFL alignment (though with geographical Divisions). What some of you want, to use the expression that someone else just used to describe this proposal the League's coming up with... is that you want your cake and eat it too. You don't want the East to have to play significant games, Regular Season or Playoffs, against the West, so creating that separation; but you still want the potential of an all-eastern Final. Greedy buggers.
