Isn't it like that in other sports too when it comes to midwest and western teams? Take the NBA for example - last year the LA Clippers had to play the Memphis Grizzles in the first round.

How about MLB? That's not even an east-west split. Teams from the east coast could play teams from the west coast in the Divisional Series round.

I think there's just a reality where if you have a team in the midwest or west in any sport you're going to travel more, and the NHL is no exception.
