Exactly what I was about to post the moment they started cancelling games the old schedule went by the window. The Rangers would have just played on the road yesterday.

You haven't given any concrete reason they couldn't, and shy of an intimate knowledge of the process, I really doubt you can.
I think that all the league really need to come up with a schedule is 24 hours. They get updated well in advance of all booking and all teams are told to leave enough dates open so the main variable will be travel arrangement for Refs and league officials. The TV networks would likely need more time than the league anyway.
