Then the only time a team has "extensive" travel is in the playoffs in which I don't think they'd complain to much. Something like:

EASTERN:

Lemieux Division
Pitt
Philly
Clb
Buf
Fla
TB
Wsh
Car

Orr Division
Bos
Mtl
Tor
NYR
NYI
NJ
Ott
Quebec

WESTERN

Gretzky Division
Edm.
Cgy
Van.
Seattle
L.A.
Ana
SJ
Pho

Howe Division
Det
Col
Chi
Nsh
Min
Win
StL
Dal
I do like this... the division names too... As for the playoffs, how about having the top three in each division seeded for the top 12 with the remaining four based on the best point count not seeded... this dilutes a weak division..

The only problem, Detroit will insist on being in whatever is called the East... therefore do away East and West and just have four North American conferences..
