I do like this... the division names too... As for the playoffs, how about having the top three in each division seeded for the top 12 with the remaining four based on the best point count not seeded... this dilutes a weak division..
The only problem, Detroit will insist on being in whatever is called the East... therefore do away East and West and just have four North American conferences..
