OK, what happens with expansion? (Hopefully we avoid contraction). Do you want each expansion to have 6 teams at once? If not, you're still going to get unbalanced divisions. The 4-division alignment was not about ensuring equal divisions, otherwise you'd have a major re-alignment after each expansion. The re-alignment was about improving team revenues, specifically TV revenues for away games, by having fewer road games start on tV at 4PM and 10PM.
