Interesting, as the original schedule had interconference play and the schedule as played was devoid of interconference games....

Face it, there's a major difference between the "normal" scheduling process you're talking about and the scramble to re-make a schedule after a work stoppage.

Now, the dates on the re-made schedule are LIKELY to be in alignment _as much as possible_ with the original schedule, for the reasons you're saying, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to make every team's home schedule identically mirror the original schedule in a reduced season. Trust me, I know this -- I've been through more than one mid-season schedule re-jigger due to teams folding at the minor-league level.

You're just flat out wrong here.
This is what the Bruins did with season ticket holders in 1995.

If a game was on say March 4h they would say ( use ticket dated March 4 or use ticket Game x from October/November )

They will use the same reserved dates - the team most likely will be different.
