1 of 4? Won't it be 1 of 8?

Plus, if it is that egregious, wouldn't the current format have been dumped after last year when 4/6 of the Western Conference's first two round playoff series crossed multiple timezones?

1) STL-SJ 2) PHX-CHI 3) STL-LA 4) PHX-NSH

With last year's seeds you could get something more geographically natural like this:
1 Vancouver vs. 8 Los Angeles
2 St. Louis vs. 6 Chicago
3 Phoenix vs. 7 San Jose
4 Nashville vs. 5 Detroit

3 Phoenix vs. 8 Los Angeles
2 St. Louis vs. 4 Nashville
