The NEW Stanley cup playoff

Seems rather convoluted, I mean Boston had the best record why are they not the top seed?

 

Whos in, whos out? Odds?

Boston, Tampa, Colorado, & St Louis  

The top four teams in each conference will play three round-robin games — one against each of the other top seeds in their conference. This is to determine the top playoff seedings.

 

 

If early proposals hold true, the opening round is expected to consist of five-game series, with the first team to win three advancing. The matchups are: 

Eastern Conference

No. 5 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. No. 12 Montreal Canadiens

No. 6 Carolina Hurricanes vs. No. 11 New York Rangers

No. 7 New York Islanders vs. No. 10 Florida Panthers

No. 8 Toronto Maple Leafs vs. No. 9 Columbus Blue Jackets

Western Conference

No. 5 Edmonton Oilers vs. No. 12 Chicago Blackhawks

No. 6 Nashville Predators vs. No. 11 Arizona Coyotes

No. 7 Vancouver Canucks vs. No. 10 Minnesota Wild

No. 8 Calgary Flames vs. No. 9 Winnipeg Jets

Can you imagine what the ice would be like in July in many of the arenas?

 

I'm sure skating on mashed potatoes will make for great hockey.

should not be a problem at all remember there's no fans watching the game so the doors will not be opening and closing letting the outside air into the arena most arenas have a very sophisticated refrigeration system for their ice surfaces case in point was the Phoenix Coyotes were in Arizona

Bad hockey is better than no hockey.
