Interesting...July sounds a bit optimistic to me.

3 weeks from today, and there's so much to still figure out, that does seem optimistic...even for informal workouts to resume

Three games a day in one rink. No fans probably. Just give it up Gary. Plan the draft and see you next year.

Feels like reopening is gaining steam, albeit so many questions to sort out and answer. The more I think about it and after reading Brooksie, I'm not so sure it makes sense at all

All they need to do is keep the players from breathing, then it will work out just fine.

Under any scenario, they would not make the playoffs...so I don't see how we're being "shafted". The wrong thing to do would be to use a scenario where they are suddenly IN the playoffs.

We are currently in 10th place in the conference. If 12 teams from each conference make the playoffs, how are we not being shafted?

We were on a pace (15-6-1) to make the playoffs going into the shutdown. If we are not in the playoff pool, IMO we are getting shafted.

Being on a pace to make the playoffs is and being in a playoff spot are two different things. They aren't in a playoff spot -- no reason they should be rewarded based on what MIGHT have happened. (Personally, I do not think they were going to make the playoffs.)

Gotta disagree. What if this happened to last year’s Blues? It’s why they play an 82 game schedule. Now I’m not saying they should be compared to last year’s Blues, but with Igor and company, I believe they are a playoff team. Bottom line; if they are excluded, they are getting shafted.

It would have been a shame, but that's the cold hard reality -- all sentiment aside, the fact remains: they are NOT currently in a playoff spot.

I think this actually works in Ranger's favor. Realistically, how far into the playoffs were they going anyway? In this way they are one of just 7 teams that miss the playoffs meaning 7 teams in the draft lottery. I'd have to like those chances better than when they were team 13 or 14 or a playoff team.

How would another # 1-3 pick work out for the Rangers? I think it's a win-win

Bettman not willing to give up on the season......period!

“I don’t want to sound Pollyanna, but canceling is too easy a solution,” the 67-year-old Bettman said." “That means you stop working hard to do all of the things that we’re doing, and I ultimately believe that there will be an opportunity"

The latest .....
"To avoid prolonged rustiness from already being off the ice for months, the proposed format would have the top four seeds participate in a three-game tournament while the play-in round was going on. It is yet to be determined if the mini-tournament would have an impact on seeding"

"ESPN reported the league will likely prioritize two “hub” cities for a restart if the proposed plan is approved by the league and the NHL Players Association. On Monday, Bettman said there were eight or nine locations under consideration."

"The NHLPA executive committee is expected to meet Thursday to discuss the format and other return-to-play issues"

Per a report from Sportsnet's Chris Johnston, the NHLPA on Thursday was in the process of taking a vote on the 24-team format to return to game action, and the results of the vote are expected on Friday.

Did you read it? All it says is they agreed to negotiate it does not mean the games will be starting.

actually, the nhlpa is now going to vote, and of course I read it, taking everything with a grain of salt. These are uncharted times and ever changing, for me, any news that talks are happening is one step closer to "letting the games begin"...I was being more rhetoricle than literal.

More light at the end of the tunnel, it feels as we travel through Covid 19 each day and each week we get closer to the reality of restarting the NHL.

The players will be rusty, the passing and the power plays will be poor, the goalies not sharp. The players may also be more susceptible to injury due to their lack of conditioning. While I understand the sentiment that we should not let the China Virus prevent the Stanley Cup from being awarded, there are concerns regarding player safety and the quality of play that perhaps it's best to simply cancel and begin as usual next season.

As a point of reference, the Cup was not awarded in 1919 because of the Spanish flu epidemic.

I honestly believe that's exactly what the owners really want to do...they can recoup a nice chunk of change from the players by cancelling the season (oh, that pesky escrow). I boycotted the NHL during the last shortened season, and I will do so now (as well as other sports).

Now, I am always on the side of players during any type of labor strife with NHL, but in this case I have to agree with something people say every time there's an owner lockout: What the hell are these guys doing with their money?
