We'd also likely have to implement a wild card round for increased team revenue, play a series for the 7th/8th seeds in each conference with the four teams that just miss out. Due to the expansion and fact now 50% of the league losses out on extra revenue. Wild card rounds would be a way of generating revenue for teams that aren't contenders.

This is now a 2 conference system in fact its the current system with 4 4-team divisions instead of 3 5-team divisions. except there's a wildcard round now because 82 games isn't enough to decide the teams that make the playoffs I guess?
