Hate the wild-card/crossover thing...
If they want to go back to the old fierce division rivalry days just do it. Two games against everyone not in your division and spread the rest in-division, no crossover. That way you're playing as close to an equal schedule as possible against the teams you're fighting for playoff spots with.
Also, you start having only three teams from a division getting in and you run the risk of only one intra-division playoff series in a season (in a given division) if team#4 (crossing over) beats #1. How's that build rivalries ?
