Only Conference Games?

As you may or may have not known, next season, the schedule has changed again. Now you only play your divisional opponent 6 times in a season each, and you play more inter-conference games.

Though yesterday on WFAN, the Islanders TV guy, Howie Rose, brought up an interesting point which I'd like to see but it will probably never happen. We all can admit there are way too many teams in hockey, which has devalued the sport a bit, but how about during the season you only play teams in the Conferece? I personally think it's a great idea, because honestly, I don't care about any teams out west, they don't interest me at all

Rose brought up some arguments against it too, saying that the Western Conference teams still want to see guys like Crosby, Ovechkin etc.. and still see the historical teams like NY Rangers, Toronto, Montreal.

Though I think it's a great idea, it would put more meaning into the season and bring more rivalries, which let's face it, don't exists between teams in the other conference.
