it would be fun cause almost every team has something to fight for, but I don't know if you can convince owners to spend all that money on a team that could go down. So many more entertainment/sporting options in NA compared to Europe and towns aren't loyal to only one team.
If the Rangers lag in a 2nd division their attendance will go down a lot and then you'll have a 46,000 seat ballpark (that still has to be maintained $$$) empty cause people will just spend money on the other teams
You'd have to include a salary cap.

Two, teams would have create interest in their pro teams.

Three, if the Rangers lag, e.g. that's their penalty for being piss poor now isn't it?
