I’m going to be pretty mad when a playoff team wins the draft lottery (penguins)
Those Carey Price rumors in the media the other day make perfect sense now.
They’re being gifted another franchise player
Gotta say: the NHL being the first announced out of the gate is a rare win for them. Still need to get the location details but good job getting it together. Of course, a lot to actually execute and probably a fair bit of good fortune needed throughout.
So the Caps will play 3 games in the first round (vs Philly, Tampa and Boston) to determine seeding. While their next round opponent has to play a best of 5 series.
I know they won't try this but have to wonder if caps adjust their play to match up with a certain team in round 2
The NHL said they don’t know if they are using a bracket or Re Seeding after the play in round
Doesn't game planning include adjusting for the team you are playing?
So the regular season is over. Ovi and Pasta at 48 goals. Rocket for Ovi?
Don't get cute NHL, don't f*** around here!
At first glance the draft lottery rules seem incredibly complicated, I'm kind of glad the Caps aren't involved.
I think its simply the loser of the play in games have a 3.0% chance of winning the lottery. (or was it 3.5%?)
Whats complicated is they can't wait until the play ins are played for some reason.
Yeah, except the Pens, Isles, CBJ all have a chance to win it. Which would be atrocious.
Ovi is sharing the Rocket.
Man, a 48 goal and 49 goal seasons (shortened), as well a season lost to lockout.
I am starting to get excited! Start it up right now!
I thought Betteman said no sooner than July 1... so, over a month away
That’s Phase 3 for training camp. We are in phase 2 now and 6 players can be on the ice at a time. Siegs was already back on the ice today.
And if 2020-21 RS play doesn't begin until December, you can probably add another shortened season to Ovie's being kneecapped in his chances to reach 50.
The players don’t really need a 2nd offseason after a few weeks of playing.
I think he only cares about Cups and 895.
which the latter he’s lost a lot of games to. Age wise
Tom Brady is going to age 45. Grodie Howe played to 52. If Ovie wants the record he will get it
No but the front offices need a bit of time to sort out rosters and drafts and contracts.
The 2 you mention are higher priorities imo, but as a fan I'd like him to get 2 more 50s, giving him 10 in all. That record - along w/ #895 (or more) - would last a long time.
Yeah, I've never been a fan of Bettman, but I think he did a good job here. Seems like he has done a better job than the NBA in getting things together. It probably helps he is working with the NHLPA and not the NBA players.
Ovi gets f***ed out of 50 again and a playoff team can win the lottery -- both of those things suck. But, apart from that, I think they're doing a really nice job.
Are we sure about Ov? My understanding is the pre playoff games are not playoff games. They count for setting seedings and for who gets in. Its a detail. Do the Caps round robin games stats count? You would think the PA would insist that they count toward service. Maybe I just missed where they said they don't count.
My view all along has been that Ov will get his games on the back end that he loses on the front end. These 10 games aren't a deal breaker anyway. It just kills a 50 goal season, if they don't count the stats in the pre playoff games as regular season stats.
Separate names with a comma.
