Just leave it at six divisions of five teams. Move the Blue Jackets to the east, the Jets to the west, move Dallas to the Central (where it makes more sense) and Colorado to the Pacific. Too bad for the Red Wings that they have to stay in the west. I believe the Blue Jackets asked to move to the east first, although I could be wrong on that.

Atlantic: Devils, Flyers, Islanders, Penguins, Rangers
Northeast: Bruins, Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Sabres, Senators
Southeast: Blue Jackets, Capitals, Hurricanes, Lightning, Panthers

Central: Blackhawks, Blues, Predators, Red Wings, Stars
Northwest: Canucks, Flames, Jets, Oilers, Wild
Pacific: Avalanche, Coyotes, Ducks, Kings, Sharks
slightly modified, I like this:


Atlantic: Devils, Flyers, Islanders, Penguins, Rangers
Northeast: Bruins, Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Sabres, Senators
Southeast: Stars, Capitals, Hurricanes, Lightning, Panthers

Central: Blackhawks, Blues, Predators, Red Wings, Jackets
Northwest: Canucks, Flames, Jets, Oilers, Wild
Pacific: Avalanche, Coyotes, Ducks, Kings, Sharks
