  1. https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/1976690/health-matters-what-medical-experts-think-about-nhls-return-to-play-plan Interesting considerations from a panel of health experts
  2. Evidence that gambling in sports is where the NHL is truly at these days...
  3. And there could be other things we aren't even thinking about...
  4. "Something will happen" is the truer statement...
  5. I guess some acquired players like Luchuk, Blandassini, Lucchini could be worth a look at the NHL level. But I think your choices are very good.
  6. Who else is there of any significance at this time?
  7. No mention of "Playoffs" in what you've quoted. What does paragraph "B" indicate BTW. That said, players still receive compensation for a playoff appearance. The NHL and NHL Players’ Association (NHLPA) agree to set aside a playoff bonus pool to be distributed to each playoff team based on how far they advance. It’s referred to in Article 28 of the NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) as the Player Fund. https://thehockeywriters.com/nhl-player-playoff-compensation/ In 2019, the eight playoff teams that lost in the first round received roughly $2.6 million ($325,000 to each of the teams). With each team having a roster of 25 players, each player received approximately $13,000. The four playoff teams that lost in the second round received $2.6 million ($650,000 to each of the teams); each of the 25 players received approximately $26,000. The two teams that lost in the third round received $1.6 million; each of the 25 players received approximately $65,000. The Stanley Cup Finalist received $3 million; each of the 25 players received approximately $117,000. Stanley Cup Champions received $4.9 million; each of the 25 players received approximately $200,000.
  8. You could be right... that said, I think they still have a final check that they have opted out of for the time being. And don't players get money for winning a series?
  9. I imagine, for some, it is all about money. For some... image. For others... it is what they want do as athletes.
  10. Undecided myself... but I would surely watch it if it happens. Though I love our Habs and the game of hockey, I'm not in need of a fix this year. There are more important things that need fixing IMHO.
