NHL Realignment Talks

So at the draft the topic of the impending realignment came up according to Yahoo Sports as the new Winnipeg Jets have shaken up the league. The idea currently being thrown around is to have 4 divisions, having 2 divisions with 8 clubs, and the other  2 with 7. The regions being named are the Pacific, Midwest, South, and East. This has got me thinking of who would be in what division.

EASTERN

East: BOS, NYR, NYI, MON, OTT, NJ, TOR, BUF

South: FLA, TB, CAR, CBJ, WAS, PIT, PHI

WESTERN

Midwest: CHI, MIN, WPG, STL, NAS, DAL, DET

Pacific: LA, ANA, SJ, VAN, PHX, COL, EDM, CAL

Judging by these regions they would need to rename them to something more like Northeast, South, Midwest, and Pacific.  Both Detroit and, most desperately, Columbus want in on the Eastern Conference. The idea is to have divisions based on time zones but with 16 teams in the Eastern time zone then the ultimate debate hinges on the Red Wings and Blue Jackets. Unless they take down the conference idea all together. What would any of you do?
