The kicker is that it takes 20 teams to vote "yes" on any particular scheme and there are 15 teams out East, so they could kill anything they don't like.
Eastern teams don't want to play home-and-home with Western teams because that involves more travel (and they are a bunch of *******).
And some teams don't like 8- and 7- team divisions for playoffs, although I think you could probably take the top 2-3 teams and then do a wildcard scenario and fix that.
It sucks because most of the teams are pretty happy right now. I think the only teams that would prefer a different system are Minnesota, Winnipeg, Dallas, Colorado, and Detroit.
