Wild card does nothing to address the imbalance.
3 of 7 divisional spots in the west. 3 of 8 in east
2 of 14 wild card spots in west. 2 of 16 in east.
If they had done the play in with only the eastern teams it would have addressed the imbalance.
I'm good with the set up, but they should just do top four. The would card accomplished very little.
