    Looking for a bright spot on a very dark subject; the Isles can hopefully regroup after their big time collapse.

    Nuts... They should just take a hiatus and then decide to play 75 games this season. That would leave teams 4 to 6 games to make a final surge.. Pushing the season into July merely impacts onto next season...

    Agreed. I'd support a shortened season. I think they're dreaming if they think two weeks will do it, but they can reevaluate that later. What a mess.

    Man, what a bummer this is. VGK finally got their shit together and now this happens.

    So the NHLPA players voted Price for Best Goalie two years in a row???
    No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

    With the season probably over Ovi may not have a chance to break the scoring record.

    Probably abit too many teams (I probably would have capped it at 20), but if that's what it takes to get hockey then lets go nuts.

    Out of curiosity, did every team that was mathematically eligible to grab the eighth seed make the cut? That would make this easy to understand as well.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    More unbelievable than the resumption of play is that the Habs still have a chance to win the cup!!!

    PS Hobo- the 8 first round qualifiers were determined by point percentage at the time of season suspension. The only close one was Montreal vs Buffalo, but even Buffalo went along with the proposal.
