    Super slow sports day if hockey is in here.

  18. Tony K. on May 26, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    At this point, there is a considerably higher than 50% chance this NHL season is over and done.
    In the event world circumstances change for the better, a best case scenario would be going straight to an expanded 24-team playoff format that would ideally somehow preserve the magic number of 16 wins required to win the Stanley Cup, all of which would be preceded by a short training camp.
    The remaining teams not in the playoff mix would simply be told to prepare for next season as it makes absolutely no sense to bring them back for a handful of regular season games but out of fairness, the revenues from all the playoff games could be shared with those teams not participating.
    I would assume the deepest into the summer that the NHL brass would consider going would probably be no later than mid-July and that would include any potential Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

  19. Enrico Hernandez on May 26, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    It’s a great sports day of hockey is involved

  20. Christopher Nicht Mikrowelle on May 26, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    When was the last time they talked about the NHL? They rather talk about the goat conversation for the 1000th time.

  21. Fox Molnar on May 26, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Cuddos to finally talking about NHL….need more coverage once this crisis is over as well though.

  23. Jim Ross on May 26, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    The Coronavirus did not come out of China. Gary Bettman manifested this virus internally & incidentally spread it tot he world.
