    Except they would never do that because players on teams who have played fewer games and just barely miss the playoffs would file a grievance with the NHLPA. They might not get paid, but they do get performance bonuses depending on how far into the playoffs they get.

    If the league felt it was safe enough to proceed with playoffs, they'd feel it would be safe enough to finish off the regular season, or at the very least enough of it with a modified schedule so that everyone played an even number of games.
    It is all speculation at this point, i am just holding onto hope that we still get to see a team win 16 playoff games and take home the worlds greatest trophy.

    I wonder if they'd just cut the season now; calculate everything on % of points earned to accomodate different games played and then begin the playoffs. Could also do shortened playoffs too, best of 5 or best of 3.

    Could feasibly play it all within a month in July or August if need be.

    That is what i am thinking, but i don't know if i could ever agree with changing playoff format. The eventual winner would have a large * beside their name.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    At least this will prevent me from hemorrhaging any more money in my weekly hockey pools for a bit

    I can't see them resuming this season at all. Like others have said you sacrifice next year by playing so late into the summer. They will follow the NBA's minimum 30 day "postponement" and when they revisit it and realize they need to hold off longer they will just outright cancel it. Shitty deal, but this is going to have an impact on pretty much every sport/large gathering like concerts and festivals for months still.

    Play to 74 games is 90% of the season. Make Round 1 and maybe Round 2 a best of five and go from there.
    The cup needs to be won.

    Make round one a single game. That would be fucking exciting!

    There will be discrepancies to using the current standings-some bubble teams have games in hand-some have played more home games. Some have games left against weaker teams or head to head games against teams fighting for he same playoff spot.

    That can all be overcome if the alternative is no playoff revenue for the owners.

    Well as if 2020 can’t get worse, Bakersfield Condor and Edmonton Oiler forward Coby Cave has died at 25 from a brain bleed.

    I put my flames flags back into my truck. I'm pretending they are making a deep playoff run. It amuses me.

    I am of course no fan of the Oilers, but that is sad to see.

    Oddly (or perhaps not) with all the Covid shit going down, this annoncement seems not very impactful.

    What a stupid arena name!

    I’m excited to announce that Amazon has bought the naming rights to the historic Seattle arena previously known as KeyArena. Instead of calling it Amazon Arena, we’re naming it Climate Pledge Arena as a regular reminder of the urgent need for climate action. It will be the first net zero carbon certified arena in the world, generate zero waste from operations and events, and use reclaimed rainwater in the ice system to create the greenest ice in the NHL. #ClimatePledge

    That's such an awkward-ass name. The team's going to be called the Evergreens, isn't it. Bletch.
