I don't know how this is any better if there will be more back-to-back games to be played. If this is true, it would only mean they get an extra two days of rest at the start before they go on a more intense grind.

Really not surprised, I thought they would give them 24 hours, but 48 hours makes more sense. I know other teams have played after being off for a week, but this team has been down for more than 3 weeks.

 

They need this time to get back to even close to game shape.

i'm more concerned about the long term health effects from the variant, that potentially could drastically cut their careers short, but alas, this is the entertainment business: "the show must go on"

What the NHL is doing with the schedule is obvious.
 

They are disregarding health and safety to force a recovering team to squeeze in all games so that they don’t interrupt the playoffs start time anymore they already have, both for the Northern teams and also the other  qualifying teams. 

 

I’m glad JTM voiced his concern. 
 

NHL is treating this exceptional scenario as a minor blip, ‘other teams have gone through it’ my @$$

The league is clearly not getting it...

 

Oh you just need a couple more days to practice?


Here have two days and then play twice in less than 24 hours. Good right?

So now it's just 19 games in 29 days. 

Still 31 days since that Oilers game can only be tacked on May 18th now.

 

They didn’t help anything though.

Nothing official yet. Let's hope nux is still talking with NHLPA and NHL.  It can only benefit NHL to have a better product on ice and also not risk injuries of covid recovered athletes.  This can blow up in their face.

just kill the 4 games vs Ottawa, reschedule the rest of the games starting next Wednesday to give the guys a full week off. 

No way those are our most winnable games!

 

Take out the Jets and Leafs games and we’re good. ;)

I hear you. But looking at the schedule it does make sense. 4/8, and last 4 in a row, vs Ottawa. We could even play those out once the playoffs begin if there was some reason to for lotto placement.
