Well that's certainly debatable.

What about if they played in the NBA?

Aside from Detroit, Anaheim, San Jose, Dallas, and maybe Calgary, the Western Conference is just as weak as the East.
Vancouver sucks. All they got is Luongo. Minnesota is just purely a defensive team and the Penguins would have a winning record against them almost every season. Colorado, Edmonton and Nashville are decent teams, but the Pens are decisively better. Chicago obviously is on their way up, but can they reach the Penguins' level? I guess we'll see about them. Phoenix is on their way up as well but they have a huge mountain to climb. St. Louis has a few good young players but they're still an average team and I don't expect them to challenge anybody in the West. And Columbus and LA suck.
So what are you people talking about when you say the West is better than the East? You're talking about 4 teams. That's it. Don't believe the hype.
