Regarding the latest news that it will be top 3 in each conference and 4 wildcards, I only see one scenario that would be the least complicated and IMHO - the best option:
Have the 4 conference winners (reg season) ranked league wide 1-4 based on best overall record of those 4 teams.
The 4 wildcards spots would be the best teams of the remaining 18 teams from all the conferences. The top wild card seed would play the conference winner with the least amount of points and the lowest wild card seed would play the conference winner with the most amount of points ( and president's trouphy winner.)

in other words:

Conference winner ranked 1st would play wild card winner # 4
Conference winner ranked 2nd would play wild card winner # 3
Conference winner ranked 3rd would play wild card winner # 2
Conference winner ranked 4th would play wild card winner # 1
