All Player Alarms
Mark Giordano thinks that if the playoffs do happen, they'll be one of the best ever.
"If we can ever get back to playing, I think this is going to be one of the best playoffs ever because every team is going to have all their guys healthy and ready to go," Giordano said. "You’re truly going to be playing the best version of every team, I think." It certainly would be a one-of-a-kind playoffs if it does happen. There are potential concerns because while players will be rested and healthy for the playoffs if they do happen this year, they'll also be very rusty. As things are right now, players haven't been able to go out to the gym or to skate. They're working out from home, but there's only so much they can do. The NHL will likely set aside some time for practices before play resumes, but because of how tight the schedule will be, it's likely to be a rather limited amount of time compared to a normal training camp. So while players will be healthy and rested, they could also be sloppy. That said, it would be an incredibly interesting playoffs to watch and of course the hope is that we reach a point where it is safe to have the 2020 playoffs.
