Someone proposed this alignment on Twitter to me today and this is the next best option that I could think of:

15 teams in each conference. 8 in one division and 7 in the other.

Anaheim
Calgary
Edmonton
Los Angeles
Phoenix
San Jose
Vancouver

Chicago
Colorado
Columbus
Dallas
Detroit
Minnesota
St. Louis
Winnipeg

Buffalo
Montreal
NY Rangers
NY Islanders
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh
Toronto
Ottawa

Boston
Carolina
Florida
Nashville
New Jersey
Tampa Bay
Washington
No offense, but...

That's terrible. Panthers would never agree to that.

No box office draw in the division besides Boston.

People need to stop being so hung up on distances. There isn't much difference between a 1.5 hour flight and a 3 hour flight (in terms of player fatigue) as long as you aren't crossing time zones.
