The American division would have the NY teams. Very fitting for a few reasons. 1. The tie-in with a NY team once being called the Americans 2. Its the only division with all American teams including historic and patriotic cities like Washington and Philly - even Columbus ( heck just look at their jersey - it screams of an "american division" team) . 3. Good for marketing/selling the game with TV in the U.S....."Tonight a classic American division tilt between Philadelphia and New York!!!"...
Since I heard of NHL's division names with "Mid-West", I wanted Chicago to keep its division name, and have the MTL/BOS/FLO division called "Atlantic" for the exact reasons Jetsfan79 mentioned. But I could never come up with a name for the PHI/NY division so I never bothered posting anything.
"American" division is a perfect fit.
