Just like MLB. They are going to open the league July 1, and then the 14-team playoffs begin August 1.

It doesn't even feel like the same season. No momentum. I miss hockey, but they should just end the season and start back in fall.

I'm coming around to this - but even if that is the case, there are other concerns now - salary cap, etc.

Plus everything stopped just after the trade deadline. Some teams giving up good assets for rentals, etc. I guess that's just their loss.

The free agents in this off-season are going to get boned hard core.

ESPN reported IF the season resumes, straight to playoffs with 24 teams.

"Playoffs?"

How long is it going to take to get through a 24-team playoffs? Think of all the injuries these teams are going to incur with very little time to prepare for the 2020-21 season. I miss hockey, but this seems stupid.

Here's a good explanation of the playoff format.

That would be cool if L.A. was one one of the host cities but it probably ain't happening. But how about Toronto and L.A.? A little east coast Canada and west coast U.S. action?

Host cities should be teams that didn't make the playoffs, IMO. Less bias for the teams that did make it that way, plus shares the revenue to those cities that didn't make it.

24 out of 31. If you are among the 7 teams that didn't make it, you really sucked this season!

Players testing positive as they come into the camps - no surprise. Has anyone heard how long they plan on keeping people out if they test positive during the playoffs?

Imagine something like: OV out for Caps for two weeks for testing positive.

That would be season over for Caps. You could say the same thing for the star player on any other team, really. So two weeks is too long. One week? One game? How do they decide?

Retarded, so they test positive so what. They have a runny nose, who gives a shit. Is the bar really this low now? It used to be hospitalizations and deaths were what mattered, now it’s counted if you have it and are like the 99% plus of other people who get over it in a few days. When is this stupid, hysterical bullshit ever going to end? This country became completely pussified overnight.

Nice lamp by the way.

DONT SAY THAT! I wouldn't be able to sleep for days! God help my beloved CAPS! This year they're sputtering along but not the team 2 years ago by far. Holtby might be toast after this year, Samsonov might be the guy moving forward. But I noticed the speed and swarming defense they played against Vegas for the cup and they were a totally different team. They really really wanted to win. Knowing us they will be 1 an done! However I looked forward to watching live hockey again and screaming my ass off when we score. I miss it.

We about to start this bitch up! It's a very weird format. Round robin and then head to head match ups?

Yeah, it was fun to watch the games. A bit odd without fans. The fake crowd noise wasn't horrible. They did a pretty good job of having the crowd get louder at moments, cheer more at goals, etc. Sad they didn't have a "ref you suck!" chant.
