It took a player being infected for the NBA to suspend the season. I expect it will take the same for the NHL.

The NHL will do whatever local governments force them to do.

You think they will wait till then, i think more like Trizzak.

I see Soccer still going in Europe, but not sure about in Italy?

I think the NBA did just because lebron James said he won't play if they're not any fans at games.

I hope not, it would prevent TeamTank from sinking lower in the standings

8th is good enough, dont think NJ or Sabres will go on a winning streak and pass them anyways.

Didn’t the Habs climb up due to the Lottery to pick Kotka?

Yes 1 spot, so odds are even worse they will move up again.

8th is most likely.

The thought of there not being any playoff hockey really stings.  Even when the Habs are out, I watch a lot of playoff games.  Damn it.

But if there is a season to miss the playoffs then this is the one.

Sounds like the world championships will be cancelled also. Not to mention the european champs in football (I refuse to call it sucker) will be postponed one year.

I am the opposite, could care less about playoffs if Habs are not in it and watch very little. Especially come June, summer hockey is idiotic.

 

But am very curious to see how this situation plays out. Will amateur sports/minor leagues also be shut down or will they go with no/few fans at games, as a first step?

Odds dont work that way.  Winning previously has no effect on this years odds

Playoffs and the rest of thenseason still likely to be played.  Nhl is telling playoff teams to book arenas in july.  They dont want to lose the revenue so this is just postponing games not cancelling.

Chris, you never had to watch this garbage team even when they were playing.

 

However it may leave a void in your life so you will have to find something else to be negative about.

No sports or big gatherings going on,  It looks like there is going to be a lot of babies being made these next few weeks, and a lot of stuff getting done around peoples house's.

Freidmann on 31 thoughts said that there are a few options when thenleague comes back.

 

1) play the regular season games we miss

 

2) have bigger playoffs since its unfair to just eliminate teams (and also we need to make up some revenue lost)

 

12 teams per conference

Top 8 teams get byes (4 per conference on pts percentage)

Next 16 teams play each other (8 per conference) in a best 2 of 3 series or two games total goals series.

 

So the habs might make the playoffs yet.

 

Which would be funny as the negative nancys cant keep using the missed the playoffs in 4 of 5 years naŕrative.

 

 

 

Again though, no one knows the plan for sure.  The NHL will have to reassess once we know when we can start.

Maybe they should bite the bullet; infect all players, refs and team staff with virus, isolate them for 2 weeks and then get back at er, with select few fans in attendance. 

 

We need to see the last 11 Hab games, don't we?

Yes.  Yes we do.  It's hard enough coming up with filler material from April through to the preseason for HW.  Adding another month to that?  Yikes.  We need those games.

I’d be OK if we at least still had the AHL.
