1. Growing up a child of the Patrick division. I never remember any *****ing about how it was unfair that the division had 6 teams and every other division had 5. So I don't understand it now for one conference to have 14 and the other 16. People will get used to it.
2. Or why not just have 9 teams make the playoffs in the East. The 9th team would come from the division with the most points accumulated from all teams in that division. Then the 4th and 5th place teams in that division have a one game playoff. Then just have divisional playoffs from there.
3. Or have the 4th and 5th place teams from each of the East divisions have a one game playoff to decide the teams for the East divisional rounds.
4. Or just suck it up.
