NHL Resumption ?

Got a call from a friend today, this is what he said is on the table apperently.

24 team playoff

12 teams will be based in Sunrise, Fla(Home of the Panthers)
12 teams will be based in Tampa Bay, Fla(Home of the Lightning)

8 lowest seeded teams in each arena will play a mini tourney to eliminate 4 teams each to bring it down to 16 teams and then they will commence with regular Stanley Cup Playoffs.

To be honest I haven't been paying attention to the NHL during this period of craziness so is this viable or what you think. Cheers Steve

Regular 2019-2020 season was scheduled to end on April 4, 2020.
that's more than a month ago, so it makes sense to start the playoffs if they are going to resume the season.

According to below Sports Illustrated article

NHL: Return to play committee discussing 24-team format - Sports Illustrated

<QUOTE>
The NHL and NHLPA are "making progress" on a plan that would allow the 2019–20 season to resume with a 24-team format, according to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun.

According to LeBrun, not all NHL players are interested in finishing the season, citing health and safety risks, but there seems to be enough motivation among the 24 teams to crown a champion.

The NHL has a Board of Governors meeting scheduled for Monday, May 18 at 3 p.m., but it is not likely that commissioner Gary Bettman would make an announcement on the plan in its current state.

<UNQUOTE>

which teams will be eliminated from the playoffs ?

the Blackhawks are last in the Central Division (72 pts). Better record than the Ducks, Kings and Sharks (Pacific Division)

From a marketing point of view, it would be a good move to start before other major sports begin.
They would have the market all to themselves, with a sports action-starved public.
This would give them the opportunity to bring in new fans to add to their base.

Can't agree more. Everybody will watch playoffs hockey. I always believe Hockey game itself, is an amazing game with thrills. But the marketing perspective... leave lots to be desired...
