Those are much better (other than adding National in front of the conferences) and I think that's what TSN was originally calling them when the first 4-division proposal came out. Midwest just seems like pandering to the American crowd. No one refers to any part of Canada as midwest Canada.

From wikipedia:

Note: Detroit is very much a part of the midwest - yet another reason I think it's crazy that Detroit is moving east, on top of the issue of balanced conferences and existing rivalries. Colorado, Dallas, Nashville and Winnipeg are not part of the midwest. The NHL is 3/7 on that one.
