Why not this (timezones in brackets).

Pacific Division:
Vancouver (PT, -3)
Anaheim (PT, -3)
Los Angeles (PT, -3)
San Jose (PT, -3)
Phoenix (PT, -3)
Calgary (MT, -2)
Edmonton (MT, -2)
Colorado (MT, -2)

Mid-West Division:
Minnesota (CT, -1)
Chicago (CT, -1)
Nashville (CT, -1)
St. Louis (CT, -1)
Winnipeg (CT, -1)
Dallas (CT, -1)
Detroit (ET, 0)

Central Division:
Boston (ET, 0)
Ottawa (ET, 0)
Toronto (ET, 0)
Buffalo (ET, 0)
Montreal (ET, 0)
Tampa Bay (ET, 0)
Florida (ET, 0)

Atlantic Division
N.Y. Rangers (ET, 0)
N.Y. Islanders (ET, 0)
New Jersey (ET, 0)
Philadelphia (ET, 0)
Pittsburgh (ET, 0)
Carolina (ET, 0)
Columbus (ET, 0)
Washington (ET, 0)

15 teams each conference. Detroit has to experience Pacific Time the same amount as any other Eastern Time Zone Team. Their inter-division road games would start at 8 PM their time. It gets a little complicated in the playoffs, if their the #1 seed or a wild card team, but I don't think that issue is worth an imbalance of divisions.
