So with a more firm proposal in hand, let's at least compare current divisional and scheduling business to the new proposal:

LA, ANA, SJ now
41 home
13 Eastern
11 Central
6 Mountain
3 Arizona
8 Pacific

Vancouver now
41 home
13 Eastern
11 Central
9 Mountain
2 Arizona
6 Pacific

Phoenix now
41 home
13 Eastern
11 Central
6 Mountain
11 Pacific

Calgary/Edmonton now
41 home
13 Eastern
11 Central
6 Mountain
2 Arizona
9 Pacific

LA, ANA, SJ, PHX, VAN, EDM, CGY proposed
41 home
16 Eastern
9 Central
17 Mountain/Ariz/Pacific (all divisional)

It doesn't look as if the proposed Pacific Division's schedule has changed all that much, other than the fact they get everyone else in their building.

Colorado now
41 home
13 Eastern
11 Central
6 Mountain
2 Arizona
9 Pacific

Minnesota now
41 home
13 Eastern
8 Central
9 Mountain
2 Arizona
9 Pacific

Dallas now
41 home
13 Eastern
8 Central
6 Mountain
3 Arizona
11 Pacific

Winnipeg now
41 home
32 Eastern
9 Central/Mountain/Arizona Pacific

Chicago, St. Louis, Nashville now
41 home
15 Eastern
10 Central
6 Mountain
2 Arizona
8 Pacific

CHI/COL/DAL/MIN/NSH/STL/WPG proposed
41 home
16 Eastern
~14 Central (all divisional)
~11 Pacific/Arizona/Mountain

The Midwest Division trades out a chunk of their games west of them, offset by a few games more in the Eastern Conference and a few more in division.

Detroit and Columbus now
41 home
12 Eastern
13 Central
6 Mountain
2 Arizona
8 Pacific

Eastern Conference minus Winnipeg now
41 home
30 (or 29 for SE) Eastern
2 (or 3 for SE) Winnipeg
9 Central/Mountain/Arizona/Pacific

Proposed Eastern Conference
41 home
4 Pacific
1 Arizona
3 Mountain
6 Central
27 Eastern

The proposed Eastern Conference schedule gets to have them feel a little bit more pain that the rest of the League has felt for the past fifteen years, but still nearly not as much as the proposed Western Conference. This is a big improvement for the Red Wings and Blue Jackets.
