The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Icing, and an actual cake

Matt's got an idea, and it's a beaut:

[I]t would restore excitement and a following to the season itself, promoting regional rivalries (no more Edmonton-Nashville epics), giving the most passionate fans the best shot at the Cup (by the way, to decide your three or two Stanley seeds, you would of course have your own tournament from among the top XX teams), and spare casual watchers the startling incongruity of a Calgary-Tampa Bay final.

You'll have to read the whole thing, of course, to see how this happy conclusion is reached. (Hint: it involves a Canada/US split.)
