So we find out which players stayed in shape. And hopefully we get a hot Crawford.

Sounds like if they lose v Oilers, they go back into the lottery but not sure which spot.
 
More details of the playoff format were released today. Among the things announced:

-Only play-in round will be best-of-5. All other rounds will be best-of-7.
-Conferences will be reseeded after each round rather than using a strict bracket.
-"Home" ice advantage for games in hub cities will be decided by higher seed through the conference finals. In the Stanley Cup Final, the team with the higher regular season points percentage gets "home" ice advantage.
 
I'm sure many of the Hawks fans on here remember where they were 10 years ago tonight:


For those who remember, did any of you know immediately know that Kane scored or did you have a delayed reaction like pretty much everyone other than Kane and Sharp did?
Great moment. I did know that it was in based on Kane's reaction and not seeing the puck come off Leighton.

I've really been enjoying watching these replays. Hopefully the real thing actually happens and is awesome again.

First championship that I got to celebrate. One of the best days of my life. Always will have warm memories of that team

I remember. I was in Calgary for work (my boss and I, from Chicago, were the only Hawks fans in the joint) and we headed over to a steak joint for dinner with our colleagues from Canada. Watched the third period in the bar while we ate. Calgary fans were cheering for Philly (probably no surprise). When Kane scored, I watched him throw his gloves up and I jumped up with my hands in the air and stood like that until the replay showed it was over. Our Calgary colleagues (Oilers fans from Fort McMurray) congratulated us on finally having a hockey winner. It was pouring rain on the walk back to our hotel. I had an umbrella that my boss was giving me crap for earlier in the day. He talked much less crap on the way home. :) I stayed up watching the highlights on TSN until about 1 am. Was delightful!
 
Getting closer to the NHL coming back. NHL and NHLPA approved the teams moving forward with Phase 3, which is formal training camps, beginning July 10, assuming local conditions allow for the teams to do so. Players had previously said they'd need about 3 weeks to get back into conditioning shape which would put the playoffs starting sometime in early August.
 
trying to wrap my head around this 24 team playoff and multi phase draft. havn't been following until 10 minutes ago......why are the best teams in the league being drawn for the number one pick? is that how the lottery works every year?????

It's only the teams who do not qualify for the playoffs. This year, that will be the losers of the "play in series" which are teams 5-12 in each conference.
 
i looked at the seeding and realized some teams were not as good (record wise) as i thought. super tough for the 7 teams that are already out

So do the playoffs serve as some kind of extended training camp for the ‘20-‘21 season? Cause season usually starts the first week of October...
