I understand the theory behind this, but playing in the Western Conference in the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s meant playing other teams with top-end defensive talent: Chicago (Chelios, Belfour), Detroit (Lidstrom, multiple Selke winners, and later Chelios), Dallas (Carbonneau, Lehtinen, later Belfour), Edmonton (Joseph), St. Louis (MacInnis, Pronger). It was a bigger minefield than the current-day Eastern Conference.
