They are peaking at the right time, they've got momentum.

I was really hoping a return to play would involve an everybody is in, single elimination style tournament until the last two rounds. Fark conferences, fark divisions just go on seeding from where the season left off, sorry Detroit but you suck to bad and we need to eliminate you before the start to make the numbers work. Imagine the potential finals matches you might see that would never happen in the conference format.

It would make purists set their hair on fire but I love the idea of a chaotic road to the final four.

Canada/Leafs elimination day/celebration is going to come a little later this year it seems...

(first one I could find with a quick GIS)

Bruins are still in first place, they should get the Cup by default

Only Boston would want to be handed the cup without earning it.

Checking the schedule to see who the Sharks will be playing. :(
Oh well, maybe next year.

Cool, the Panthers will be in instead of 5 points out of the 8 spot like they are every year.

Red Wings still won't make it.  Weird considering people in their 40s around Detroit always tell me, "All I've ever known is the playoffs."  As if they don't remember their kiddle school years and the Dead Things

Nice headline:

NHLPA board approves league's plan for 24-team playoffs upon coronavirus return

If there's one goaltender i wouldn't want to face in a 1 game play-in, it would be Carey Price. A fluky goal for the Habs and Claude's stifling defensive system would likely be game over.

I'm not going to stop there. "Stanley Cup" is outdated. I'm motion that from this point forward it be called the "Cam Neely Cup"

Sharks in 6!

/ha

And all this depends on whether D2S and SonOfPierre decide to open the borders. This whole plan is ridiculous - just cancel the season like they did in 1919 and start over in October.

It took a pandemic to get the Habs into the playoffs this year but they managed.

With a healthy and rested Carey Price ?!? Well, sure I'll allow Pens' fans to feel a little salty.

Over two months since their last loss.

sad but 100% true

And my team still wouldn't be in despite the 7 game win streak that only screwed up their draft position.
