Exactly, Enigma, I don't agree with that. #1 seeds should get the lowest Playoff seed in their Division, plain and simple.
And imagine if they lose that series. No Divisions fans want the Top-seed eliminate in the 1st Round by a team from another Division, not if Divisional matchups are a primary focus where possible. If the 2nd place team gets eliminated in a crossover matchup, well that's the risk/price they take for not winning the Division.
