    Granted the standings could change, but with the way things are now some of the remaining games for the Canucks that would extend beyond May 12th may end up being completely meaningless.

    Gosh, it's a good thing they moved that Leafs-Sens game back thirty minutes.

    I was really worried about it.

    And now West Division schedule changes are coming due to three Colorado games postponed.

    It's possible now that West and North will start their playoff battles later than Central and South...

    Hey now, there's still plenty of time for those two divisions to have their own late-season outbreaks to line everything up nicely, schedule-wise!

    If the nhl was smart, they should just move canucks vs Ottawa games to end of season and spread the games around more. They can play while the playoff starts so won’t affect any games. Both teams are not making the playoff

    How does moving the Cancucks back 1 day change anything? They are clearly not ready to play and have been vocal about it. Just cancel the game.

    I wish the Blues had the balls to pull what the Avs have now done twice to avoid playing games with injuries back when we were sending an AHL roster out in February.

    Hope they’re completely exhausted come playoffs.

    Uh, conspiracy theories aside, the Avalanche were actually pretty healthy other than COVID right now. It mostly is about COVID in terms of who is currently not available and some long term injuries which are not expected to be better in the short term. (Mostly to minor players other than Erik Johnson and Francouz where the injuries might be for the rest of the season including the playoffs regardless.) The only shorter term injury is one for Patrik Nemeth, and I would not have considered him critical especially in the short run, and there was a good chance he would have been ready by the time we were scheduled to play the Blues with the original schedule.

    I am sure there is a plan BUT..... What happens if a team has an outbreak during the playoffs?

    Do they forfeit the series?
    Do they delay the playoffs until that team supposedly gets better?

    Anyone have any idea?

    I'm sure a plan of the team that is 17-1-2 in last 20 is to postpone games out of their own volition. If you conspiracy theorists want to blame someone, blame the Wild. Avs had games posponed in instances where they were forced to play the Wild who had previously added player(s) to the Covid list.

    Or it's just a guy with a normal hat that has an unpopular opinion. I dont think Col is doing anything greasy here but why postpone these games and not others. Didn't Detroit have several players miss games due to covid and they didn't postpone any of those games?

    BTW seems like you are gonna have to find a different conspiracy theory to denigrate people soon, aliens are upon us.

    These postponements are affecting fantasy hockey playoffs. Now I have to plug two holes in the roster on April 30!

    Idea for the NHL-Solution for ending the North division early.
    Instead of a meaningless three game Calgary-Vancouver series at the end of the season (May 16-19) change it into a two game home and home series between them to see who got the higher draft choice in the 2021 entry draft. The two games could include the already scheduled May 13 game in Calgary and a return match on the 17th in Vancouver. (could be part of a double header on TV with the first playoff game). Each team would finish two games short of a "full" 56 game schedule but who cares when there are no bums in seats. Might create a little extra interest for TV watchers.

    I don't feel like starting a new thread for this so i figure I will ask here. With the postponement games are they going to be moving the playoffs back a day or 2? I know originally it was supposed to start on Tuesday May 11

    Yeah, so theoretically if the Habs lose their remaining games and one of Vancouver/Calgary sweeps all the makeup games, they could steal the last spot in the North. So how is the playoff schedule going to work with that? It's a 0.01% chance to actually happen, but let's say the Habs do lose to Edmonton twice to close out the year and Calgary or Vancouver is still technically alive, are they going to delay the entire playoffs or just have every other series start as normal while the Leafs and Habs sit around for up to a week in case it strings out that long? Then the Edmonton/Winnipeg winner will probably have to sit around waiting for the winner of the other north series, etc.
