Total of 48. Seems about the most balanced way to do it unless the Jackets play Rangers, Bruins and Pens and the Wings don't.
And if it is 48 and doesn't realistically start till Jan 1 that's is a whole bunch of games per week to get the playoffs started mid-April. Or the Cup final could be scheduled through end of June I guess.
I'd have to imagine that interconference play would go away if there's less than 60 games. Or, various possibilities...
58 games - home and home against every other team in the league
56 games - two home and two road against everyone within the conference
44 games - three home and road against the division, one home and road against the rest of the conference
