Teams that start in Europe should get a bye into the first round of the playoffs.

No system is going to be flawless. I don't think the 8 team versus 7 team conferences is much of a disadvantage. What if the 4th place team in the 8 team conference is worst than the 5th place team in the 7 team conference? Should the 8 team conference only get 3 teams into the playoffs? There will always be teams that end up in stronger conferences, the West has been stronger overall than the East for a while and you still have 8 teams from each conference.
