If the season is canceled then I am sure they will look at making things even for all teams.  That means they either play more games at some point in empty arenas for teams to catch up on games played or they cut off games to what the team with the least amount of games has played.  Right now there are two teams that has played only 68 games while some have played 71.  So they either do a cutoff at 71 games and make teams play catch up games or they cut the season off at 68 games.  I don't think they are going to leave everything as is and base the final standings off winning percentage.

Might be a blessing in disguise for the Canucks (depending on how this plays out). Markstrom and Tanev will probably be healthy by the next time we play and this break will let some of the other players recharge for a push.

Stubborn? He kept posting about winning percentage and when I pointed it out he started talking about point percentage two very different things. I still think going back to 68 games is fairest. 

So you think it’s more fair to ignore the results of games that were actually played rather than applying a simple formula to the results of every game played?  
 

Fair enough. It’s clear I won’t change your mind, nor will I change mine. Have yourself a good day

Doubtful. Sounds like the refs have been told to go home

Some people have mentioned that if they do suspend the season and start the playoffs in a month or so and just use the current standings to determine the playoff teams that they might go back to each teams record after 68 games, which seems logical. So lets see how that looks for the Western Conference.

 

Western Conference

Central

Colorado 41-19-8 90pts

St. Louis 40-18-10 90pts

Dallas 37-23-8 82pts

 

Pacific

Vegas 37-23-8 82pts

Edmonton 36-24-8 80pts

Calgary 35-26-7 77pts

 

Wildcard

Nashville 34-26-8 76pts

Vancouver 35-27-6 76pts

 

Colorado would take the Central based on more regulation wins.

Nashville would take the first WC based on one more regulation win.

 

Canucks would get Colorado in the first round. Looking at the current injuries for both teams the time off would seem to benefit the Avalanche as they would be getting back 5-6 regulars.

MLS suspended their season for 30 days just now.

 

NHL's very likely to be next. Welp, sucks the season has to end like this.

The Canucks would go against the defending champs in the first round.

So after everyone is rolled back to 68 games I guess we get the last playoff spot, good for us.

The article says postponed, not cancelled. And even then it’s conjecture and assumptions.  The official word is yet to come

Jet won last night, so they are in the Nashville spot, we are actually 9th and would be out. Go look at standings on NHL.com we are out.

Read the first sentence again.

Give it a month and if it all looks good to come back every team goes into the playoffs. Make every series a best of 5 .

All teams can get back some revenue in ticket sales aswell.

If it's after 68 games then it all has to be adjusted.

Going to be interesting how this plays out but surely they'll just postpone the rest of the season or perhaps end the season at 75 games? Or call the playoffs based on win %. Either way, this benefits all teams with major injuries and the Canucks without their MVP is one of them.

So what's all the Sports Channels and Radio going to do? Layoffs? Reruns/rebroadcasts?

I would say let every team play their last two games if they have them then go from there. Assuming 71 was the cutoff.
