The playoffs ran from May 6 to June 24.
If a season started, say Dec 21 (which is optimistic) and ran until May 3 again that would be 133 days. 61 games in 133 days is 2.18 days per game, so I guess its realistic.
If they do eliminate interconference games, the PA has to do the humane thing and allow realignment for Winnipeg's sake. 61 games in 133 days with those miles would be cruel and unusual.
I think it should be conference games only in a shortened season. The games should have more weight.

As per @DamoSpin , Great news as NHL and PA put aside differences to continue Senior Player Benefits. $2 Million aside for game's greats!
