The biggest change that needs to happen is every team playing in every arena. The easiest way to accomplish this is with the 4 division(conference) alignment. I'm also a fan of divisional playoffs. The naysayers will say more than half the season is played outside the division, so how's it fair? I'd argue that a meaningful bulk of games would still be played in your division to make it 'fair'. If you're playing 5 or 6 games vs your division, how can there be an arguement that team x in div a making the playoffs over team y in div b isn't fair.
As I'm writing this, the only caveat I'd make to a strict divisional playoff could be if botth team y's inter and intra divisional record was better, then I'd say there might be merit against strict top 4 divisional playoff. Who knows if that would ever happen with the new alignment. To my initial point, if you're going to market players, then you better send them coast to coast each season.
