    OK.  Is there going to be another contest?


    We will have to wait and see.  Most likely the NHL website will create something.  If there is interest I may do a pick em also.

    Because by extending to 24 teams, you include big markets like Montréal, NY Rangers and Chicago. It's only a money thing.


    Yeah, but... there is quite a bit of importance to the money aspect.  There is a big TV contract to cash in on for the NHL.  Sure I know I will be missing out on seeing a playoff game or two in person, but frankly I'd be watching the majority of any playoffs from my couch anyways.   Not much changes really for a lot of NHL fans, other than it's being summer and nothing much else to watch on TV.


    For me it is the health aspect that is more concerning imo.  How can the NHL keep all involved not to get Covid once they start up?

    "After a lengthy review process, the American Hockey League has determined that the resumption and completion of the 2019-20 season is not feasible in light of current conditions," AHL president and chief executive officer David Andrews said.


    He added: "The League's operational focus has turned toward actively preparing for the 2020-21 season."

    League standings will be sorted by points percentage and all player statistics are considered final and official as of March 12 - the day the league suspended play. These stats will serve as the basis for determining awards for the 2019-20 campaign.

    The cancellation marks the first time since 1936 that the Calder Cup won't be awarded.

    The NHL has only one option left (that I don't think they would ever do) and that's to finish the season and playoffs over the summer or into the fall. So basically, it's over.



    I think that is exactly what they will do.  Finish the playoffs by the end of September.  Take a 1 month break and start up again in November.


    Why would they bail now?   That is a tremendous amount of revenue lost.

  6. Welcome.  and just an fyi.  I edited your display name removing the email address.  


    I think they need a little more than a few good defensemen, but they will have an opportunity this draft to fill a few needs.

    Anyway, back on topic......


    • Has anyone noticed any drops in attendance yet? 
    • Has there been an infected NHL player or coach yet?
    • IF an NHL player gets infected, what then? Quarantine?
    • How does that impact competitive balance if say, Sidney Crosby has to be in isolation for 3 weeks?
    • What if an entire team has to be quarantined for 3 weeks because of one infected player?

    A lot of schools have closed.  Some major companies are telling their employees to stay home.   It's changing every day.

    Lolz at Marchand...couldn’t happen to a nicer guy!


    Playoff atmosphere in the building to go along with the playoff weather we have been having in Philly lately.  Let’s go Flyers chants were reverberating throughout the concourse as we were exiting the building.



    Best shootout ever,   LOL 

    I was at the game also.  Hart looked half asleep on some of those goals by the Bruins.  A very nice team effort to totally control the game in the 3rd period.

    I noticed that...not to many USA posters this year...




    What is there to say.  USA played well vs Canada and lost.  USA played well vs Russia and won.  USA played well vs Finland and again lost a very tight game.


    Maybe they will have better luck next year.

    The bolded part sounds like a very reasonable way to continue constructive discussion, you think?


    The issue I brought up was/is a gang of posters dismissively ridiculing a single poster. You can understand it or you can't. You can make excuses for it all you want but from my point of view that's what's in this thread. I've seen you Flyers fans do it in other threads as well. Heated discussions 1 against 1 is a different story (which is part of this board life I guess) to which I haven't even referred to.


    To me it's inexcusable a moderator is involved in this sort of bullying. Sometimes the object himself is maybe unable to understand what's going on or unwilling to admit it. At this point I'm not in the least interested in what you have to say about it. I've heard your plea, IMO it's far from convincing.


    @hf101 , @TropicalFruitGirl26 or whoever deals with these things: Thoughts on this phenomena I tried to describe? Do you accept it as part of the discussions in here which shouldn't be intervened but to just suck it up? As in 'if you don't like how things are in here feel free to leave'?


     Ridiculing any member is generally distructive in a forum community as it generally always takes a topic off topic.  


    There is alot history here, and while it can be fun to poke the bear a bit or reference some old posting jokes in a lighthearted manner we should all be considerate that others may not know the history and more can be made of than what is actually written.  At the same time, too often we can take light jabbing a bit too far.


    I think whenever there is a question about a post or topic being a bit over the line the report button should be clicked.    This is the fasted way to get the moderators attention.
