The days when you actually had to make an effort NOT to make the playoffs lol. 

As one would expect, man there were some hideous teams making the playoffs during that timeframe...just as bad as the 1977-78 Colorado Rockies (they went 19-40-21), if not worse...teams that won well under 30 games (80 game schedule) routinely got in.  The 1987-88 Maple Leafs were especially bad; they went 21-49-10 in securing the 4th seed in their division...that capped off a 3-year stretch where the Leafs put up a combined regular season record of 78-139-23...and made the playoffs all three seasons.  They even somehow managed to win a playoff round in the first two seasons of that sample; hell, the 1985-86 Leafs (25-48-7) came within a Game 7 of reaching the Campbell Conference Finals.

This makes the most sense as long as we still aren't shut down...

 

Imagine being the SC champion and getting 4 weeks off.

I think any team would gladly trade 4 weeks off for a Stanley Cup. They also are gonna have at least 3.5 months off from now until July. It's certainly not ideal by any means and it may end up getting completely canceled anyway but I still think any team would gladly trade some time off for a Stanley Cup.

Especially since only 1 team(Pittsburgh) has won back to back Stanley Cups in the last 20 years anyway.

3rd pairing and 4th liners dont get time with the cup, sorry guys...

Lol Miles Wood would probably only fall down with it anyway, he only needs out for like 2 minutes before someone takes it away for being irresponsible with it.

Playing like 30 games in a 2.5 month stretch then sitting out for about six weeks then going right into an 82-game or 70-game, whatever they're trying to squeeze in by starting in November is a severe disadvantage going into the next season and not exactly conducive to good health for teams with long playoff runs.

Not to mention the off-season is for spending time with family and friends. Not like they can do that right now.

That’s the worst part.

I think they’d be better off just canceling The remainder of the regular season, skipping to the playoffs,  and starting camp in September per normal.

Agreed. Engrave the Coronavirus’ name on the Cup and let’s get ready for 2021.

It’s not like “not finishing a season” is unprecedented in US sports. Just look at Donny Baseball’s best chance at a World Series.

Shea Weber was supposed to play his 1000th game in Nashville.  Such a missed opportunity.  I highly doubt that's going to line up again.

Most likely the first of many to come.  Stick a fork in this season.  That last projected schedule they put out and shown here is absurd and more importantly wishful thinking.

You could very possibly have two that never get finished and another that never starts.  And that's just the NHL, NBA, and MLB.  Who knows what happens with everything else.  I don't know how anyone can attempt to put a timetable on anything right now.
