The best solution is less teams:
Adams Division: boston, ottawa, montreal, toronto, buffalo, TB, carolina
Calder Division: pittsburgh, philly, NJD,NYR, NYI, Washington, columbus
Norris Division: chicago, detroit, st. louis,calgary,minny, winnipeg, colorado
Smythe Division : anaheim,vancouver, calgary, edmonton, LA, SJ, seattle
same divsion play 4 games (4X6= 24) other con. div 4 games ( 4X7= 28 gms) Other conference 2 gms each (2 X 14 = 28) 80 gms. total to a season.
Schedule it for teams have a home and home series.
Conference are called simple enough East and West
