Watching east is 1000000000 times more exciting...barely any defensive system play, not as good goalies, way more skating, way more end to end action. Seems like the goals per game is higher, more likely to be a 3-2 win in the east versus the 2-1 of the west.

Granted I have no stats to back this up but just from watching its what it seems like to me. When eastern teams come to Rexall or Oilers go out east the games are always so entertaining even if my team loses where an Oiler win versus 1 of the dozen out of 15 big heavy forechecking defensive first teams can put you sleep better then medication even if your team is doing good
That's hockey, though. Forechecking, sound defensive play, etcetera.

This is how I feel, why do people care? It's like nationalism in the NHL, just doesn't make any ounce of sense to me.

Because you watch hockey in the East, where teams actually win an lose. In the West we only know what team is playing by the color they wear.
