Or... top three teams in each division qualify for the playoffs while the rest of the remaining conference teams scramble for two wild card positions. No need for a play in. Division winners host the wild card qualifiers, two seeds host third seeds. Preserves the divisional format while allowing strong teams in competitive divisions a chance to qualify.
