All they need to do is tack one of these games on at the end of the season and only play it if we’re not mathematically eliminated.

It's more than this.. theres a BUNCH of money on the line for many of the players with incentive clauses. The team has to play all it's games.

I’m of the mind that players could sit out in the bubble because they didn’t feel like it, they should definitely be able to sit out a game or two until their practices are good enough to play without getting injured. Put out whatever is left of the comets roster, the leafs zamboni driver, a bag of of pucks and Louie. With any luck  Louie will score just enough to screw our draft position up and increase his trade value back up to nothing

Miller has some backbone. I have no problem with what he said. Management and ownership are more worried about their reputation than the health of their players. Boggles my mind.

Sounds like a plan.

 

Add 1 week on to the end of season.. 

 

Players not able to go can sit. Players able to go plu taxi squad plus AHL players can take their place for a few days..

 

Also on back to back game nights play the taxi squad and let those who got sick get a break. Half 1 night half the next night

I wonder if they’ll allow the schedule/break to be extended or if they’ll give the Canucks the option to forfeit the first few games.

It would be unfair to give them the option to forfeit. It’s not in their blood. The league needs to step up and either cancel 2 games or make them tentative depending on standings at end of season. It would likely then they wouldn’t have to play them and make more rescheduling as it’s gonna take a miracle to get that close to a playoff spot

In a COVID season there should have been plenty of time to reschedule games even if it meant playing 48 games.

 

The league got greedy and now the players are paying for it.

Yeah but the teams we face the next few games(Oilers/Leafs/Flames) gonna value those points for playoff positioning or fighting for a spot in the Flames case. 
 

Overall the teams we face are gonna want to play those games.
