Of the remaining teams in all three conferences, the two teams with the best record, regardless of conference get in as wild cards and play each other in a three game series, or one game winner takes all, for the final spot. Why not just take the team with the best record of the rest? Why money, of course. It expands the play-off pool just a tad, and makes the league and two other cities a little more money.
The big problem with the 3 conference format is that you would have a Western Conference straddling three time zones. A maximum of two time zones per conference is sine qua non of realignment.
