Read: The Best Case Scenario For A Season

The shortened season of 1995 featured a 48 game season that was all conference based.

Kevin Allen writes at USA Today that the NHL was hoping for a 68 game season if they could start on 12/1 but are now only looking at 60 games with a slight chance at 64.

Larry Brooks tweeted, “I still believe there is a better chance of a season than not, but won’t be if NHL sticks to dollar and contract restriction demands.”
