Love the idea of returning to divisional playoffs. Not so keen on the wildcard/crossover.

Completely agree. It's a stop-gap, if nothing else. I've already noticed the Steckel being quoted in The Globe and Mail that the players want the wildcard system to give them more chances at entering the playoffs because:
“From a player standpoint, some [new] contracts are earned in the playoffs,” he said. “A lot of guys would rather be in the playoffs working for their next contract, rather than seeing one or two less regular-season road trips."
