CHRDANHUTCH, someone made this argument the other day, and I fully agree.... Hardly anyone cares about Division or Conference Champs as it is, even the players don't want to touch the Conference trophies. Beyond Playoff seeding, what's important isn't who wins the Division or the Conference,... No, what's important are the matchups. Now this Playoff proposal appears to be making both the effort to contain primarily Divisional matchups, while at the same time giving credit to teams with better records. The majority of the matchups (or even all) will still be those Divisional matchups that many fans want to see.
The only "Championship" that anyone really cares about is the Stanley Cup Championship..
