My hope would be that first place would guarantee a playoff round against a conference opponent.

In other words, if five teams qualify from conference "A" and three from conference "B", the teams pair as follows:

1st "A" vs 5th "A"
2nd "A" vs 4th "A"

1st "B" vs 3rd "B"

2nd "B" vs 3rd "A" - home ice advantage to the team with the best record.
