The wildcard teams wouldn't pertain to the divisions

The top three in each division lock up a playoff spot. Then the two teams with the best record of the remaining teams in each conference get the wildcard spots.

The two wildcard spots could be from the same division, and the team with the best record in the conference will play the wildcard with the worst.

Doesn't seem very fair for the east though, since each division has one more team to battle with for the playoffs. Seems very likely to be a plan with two expansion teams involved.
