NHL Adopts 24-Team Playoff If Season Returns

By Austin Payne Staff Writer for Telegraph Local |Owner of  Macro Sports

The NHL is going to forego the remainder of their regular season that would’ve been played had it not been interrupted by a global pandemic, and will instead insert a 24 team playoff, if the season returns as planned of course. 

Details Of NHL’s Return-To-Play Plan From Press Conference

Various sports leagues around the world are attempting to make a return to action, albeit in a modified fashion in comparison to what we would typically be experiencing, but hey, they’ve got to attempt to salvage whatever revenue they can. 

The Premier league has announced a return, the MLB is throwing out asinine suggestions that would make the game almost unworthy of being played, the NFL is proceeding as scheduled, (aside from training camps and summer programs at the moment) and the NBA is finally ramping up discussions. 

The NHL has been the first to make an official proposition however, allotting a 24 team playoff format as their choice for course of action, a form that would allow for some teams on the outside looking into get a chance at playing themselves in if they’re able to knockoff a higher seeded team in the first round.

“As we seek some return to normalcy, this is an important day for NHL fans,” Bettman said of the Return To Play Plan. “Since March 12, we’ve been hopeful and optimistic that by developing all options and alternatives, we could get to this point. I know I join sports fans everywhere when I say we cannot wait for the players to hit the ice again.”
