Then come back when all other pieces fall into place.
Personally, if forced to have 4 conference set up now, I would have gone with
VAN CGY EDM SJ LA ANA COL PHX/SEA
WPG MIN CHI DET TOR OTW STL
MTL BOS NYI NYR NJ BUF CLM
DAL NAS TB FLO CAR WAS PIT PHI
Reason being: relativley spread out for travel, 2 time zones max, keeps slots open for GT2 and QUE expansion, regroups original six rivalries DET CHI TOR and MTL BOS NYR, keeps SE competitive with some major markets.
You'd probably have to move a couple of teams to keep the current system going.
I'll say Detriot/Winnipeg/Dallas/Vancouver and see what happens.
Atlantic - Stays the same
Northeast - Stays the same
Southeast - DET, WSH, CAR, TB, FL (you wanted to be ET, you got it, stop whining)
Central - CHI, NSH, STL, CBJ, DAL
Northwest - MIN, WPG, EDM, CAL, COL
Pacific - LA, ANA, PHX, SJ, VAN
Use that as a placeholder to fix *some* concerns while waiting until you know where Phoenix and teams 31-32 are going to play.
