If they go with their 4 conferences of 8 teams. I could see a season of 76 games but with an extra round in the playoffs.

4 x against own conference (7 teams)= 28 games
2 x the rest of teams (24 teams) = 48 games
76 games

Playoffs could go like this:

All within the same conference
Qualification Round:

seed 4 vs seed 5 (best of 5)

Round 1
Seed 1 vs winner of 4-5 (best of 7)
2 vs 3 (best of 7)

Round 2

The two teams together in a best of 7

All teams remaining
Round 3

Best remaining against the last in points standing

Stanley Cup Final

The 2 teams remaining

So 20 teams out of 32 makes the playoffs. More playoffs money and more meaningful games in the season.
