So in a 7 team conference, it would have been 6 games each vs the other 6 teams in the conference (36 games), and 2 games each vs the other 23 teams in the league (46 games). 46+36 = 82 game full season.

That plan was voted down by the NHLPA however.
It all depending on which conference you were in.

7 team conference:

46 H-H interconference
36 within conference...thus 6 per team

8 team conference

44 H-H interconference
38 within conference...3 teams 6 , 4 teams 5
