On the bright side, if this marks the end of the regular season, the Canucks are in the playoffs :ph34r:B)

We bump Calgary in PPG% . So we are 3d in division and a playoff team. 

 

I don't believe NHL will come back to play and finish this regular season and/or playoffs. 

 

So for draft purposes since we are in a playoff position our 1st round pick goes to NJD via TBL for Miller trade.

What makes you not believe they are gonna finish this season? 

 

That's very silly to think. They specifically said they are pausing. They'll likely resume in 1 - 3 months when Corona has died down. 

 

The season will be played out. The Canucks will be our 2020 Stanley Cup Champs.

Just do the math.  If they need to shut down for 3 months how will they complete the season and playoffs in time to start the 2020/21 season

Massive societal overreaction in general as young/ healthy people are not being impacted BUT it is only a game and professional sports is far less important than societal decisions about health so it was inevitable that season would be cancelled.   Prediction - no SC this year just as Spanish Flu did once upon a time to NHL.   SARS and H1N1 were far more dangerous to younger healthy people but the age we find ourselves prides decisions that are hysterical in proportion to risk so it is what it is (Bertuzzi invoked).

 

Good year for growth for Vancouver.    They will hit the ground running nicely for 2020-21.

IF they resume this season/playoffs you would think that they would shorten the regular season next year as well to give adequate time off for the players. I would say playoffs are unlikely at this point. But if we do resume this year at least we will have Markstrom back healthy :)

Apparently the Athletic has removed its paywall for COVID-19 related articles.  I am a subscriber so I don't know if it's true or not.  Still, here's an article on what could happen, maybe.

And with the 14th overall pick, the Vancouver Canucks select Dylan Holloway.

 

Benning @ the table: @we just hit jackpot boys”

 

TSN: wow the Canucks got something really special here. Why Florida, Minnesota and Winnipeg passed on this kid is beyond me.

If it's that long? Finishing the season with the traditional amount of games and playoff series would be logistically impossible. The NHL would most likely cancel the regular season games and do a highly truncated playoffs like single games or best of 3.

I'm sure it's an overreaction but I would much rather they do this than risk players being one of the 0.2% in that age range that actually develops into a fatal case.

I honestly dont see the season playoff resuming. Look at how long the virus been spreading for? It's been 3 months and it's still spreading around in china even though it's somewhat contained there according to them. I dont think any player would be willing to play playoff hockey in july august and then literally have 0 time off and start the 2021 season. Plus ice condition would be atrocious and most fans would be on summer vacation if this virus passes.

That’s my point.  Apollo thinks it’s silly to think the league won’t play out a full season and playoffs.  The fact of the matter is it’s incredibly unlikely that they can do that.

Unfortunate, but for the best. Gobert about to be named DPOY.

I don't know. I think most players would still jump at the chance to play for the cup, even if it meant next to no time off before the next season.

Yeah, I just can't envision the full season being played now.
