So if it were me, I would do home and home against everyone, and then fill all remaining schedule with divisional games. None of this play one division 3 times, your own 4, the opposite conference twice. Just make it as simple as possible.
Not every team has a Crosby, Ovechkin, or Stamkos. So a lot of home-and-homes between teams from the other Conference won't offer a lot of interest to many fans, especially also if there's little to no Standings competition between those teams.
This still seems like an appropriate solution for the time being:
Just modify the current format (alignment and Playoff seeding format) as best as possible and stay with that until there's expansion and the Coyotes situation has been resolved.
