How would that work? You have 4 division opponents and 10 conference opponents.
Someone in the lockout thread mentioned it. Only way it works evenly for 48 games is 7 games against your division teams (28) and 2 games against the other teams in the conference (20).
Another idea could be 6 against your division (24) two against the rest of the conference (20) and then 4 random games to fill-in.
Could also just be either 3 or 4 games against each team in the conference to 48 games. Maybe something like 4 against the division (16) and 3 against the rest of the conference (30) with 2 random games to get to 48.
I will say if they are going to do some kind of balanced schedule like they did in 95, I would be a proponent of getting rid of division standings for the year. Just have conference standings.
