Playin Games and Play off Games

72 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Here's what we/I know:

The hub cities are Edmonton and Toronto.

Training camps begin on July 13. 

The playin games begin on Aug. 1st.

All teams in the east will play in Toronto.

All teams in the west will play in Edmonton.

According to Bob Mckenzie there will be 3 games per day, AT 12, 4, and 8. local times.

There's a clause that allows players to opt out of playing without penalty.

Max Domi and Kappo Kakko (both diabetes and both want to play) have underlying issues that "may" prohibit them from playing. That will happen the beginning of next week. Team Drs. and infectious disease experts (that the league has hired) will have to sign off on each player. If found unfit to play, they will not be permitted to play in either phase 3 or phase 4.

Good Luck, HRF with the GDT scheduling. :)

Stay tuned for more info.

Im curious about how all of this will pan out - especially the bolded part.  Will some guys choose not to play?   Will be interesting to see.

Yes.

And that files very neatly under: "Anything can happen."

The 2020 Stanley Cup Final will tentatively end on Oct. 2 at the latest, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman has learned.

The date is one of several tentatively listed in the NHL and NHLPA’s Memorandum of Understanding.

Get ready all you hockey junkies.

 

There will be games starting at 12:00, 4:00, and 8:00 p.m. in Toronto. There will be games starting at 12:00, 4:00, and 8:00 p.m. in Edmonton. Which means that if you’re on the east coast, games — essentially playoff games, mind you — will begin at 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, 6:00, 8:00, and 10:00 p.m. (shift that whole timeline three hours earlier out west, which is even better).

We’re looking at a month of six games a day, all day, everyday.

12:30, 2:30, 4:30, 6:30, 8:30 and 10:30 if you live in Newfoundland. Can't forget our most easterly province now can we.

Sources indicate multiple NHL players are indeed considering opting-out of participation. The MOU allows any player to decline participation for any reason, without penalty.

The window to opt-out begins when the new CBA is ratified by vote and the deadline is 5 p.m. ET on the third day following, so likely Monday, July 13 – the same day players are scheduled to report for training camp. 

Playoff records: 

The NHL’s memorandum of understanding revealed that qualifying round statistics will be included in playoff statistics for 2019-20. 

There was no easy answer. Even though they are technically not playoff games, the individual stats had to count somewhere – and the regular season didn’t make a whole lot of sense, considering seven teams aren’t participating and not all 24 teams are playing the same number of games with the format. That left the option to count them as a separate career stat line, have the round vanish from record, or roll them into the playoff stats.

If the playoffs can indeed be completed, the qualifying round adds a minimum of three to five games onto the usual maximum of 28. Wayne Gretzky’s record 47 points in one playoff run is probably safe, but those extra games might be enough to threaten other records.

It may be "without penalty" from the league but i suspect there would be a ton of peer pressure from players.   Its possible that a group will get together and decide not to but i actually think its fairly unlikely many will choose to sit out (even if they think they probably should).

I alway think back to Dougie Hamilton who apparently is a nice, quiet guy but has a reputation of a "non team player" because he'd rather go to a museum or art gallery when he's on the road rather than sit around playing xbox with his teammates.   A lot of peer pressure in this league it seems.

Now all they got to do is drop the puck. Good thing I don't have any yard work to do in August. I hear the warm up or placement games will be televised in between the more important play in games so it looks like they've optimized the schedule to allow the important games to get the priority. Now if Malkin and Crosby can just get opt out of playing we'll be all set.

What a charade.

If any games are played some players will show up, go through the motions, then return to their cottages as quickly as possible. Others may opt out while trying to maintain the facade that the whole thing isn't a money grabbing farce.  Some may take it seriously if they are in the twilight of their careers and need one more contract or are youngsters trying to impress their employers. There may not be an asterisk placed next to this summer tournament winner's name on the cup but........

I am in the winter of my life so summer days are precious and watching exhibition type hockey games on TV before 10 PM doesn't appeal to me. However, I imagine sport bars, in parts of the country, will be full and that will be good for their owners if not for the patrons. I acknowledge that a lot of Hab fans will enjoy this diversion from the pandemic and hopefully it exceeds their expectations.  It would be great if all participants and their families get through the event safely.

The Habs chances for the cup have gone up in smoke. Alzner has opted out. :)

Well there goes our entire defense may as well have the top 6 opt out now too.

Must have been a tough decision for him..............spend 6 weeks living in a hotel to sit on the bench, or more probably in the stands, for a team whose fans don't want him anywhere near the ice versus spending that time with his wife and two young children at the lake. The stress he endured for those 5 or 6 seconds it would take to make that decision must have been terrible. :rolleyes:
