Bill Daly talks playoff scenarios
Bill Daly spoke on a number of issues, but I believe what people want to know if hockey resumes, how will they handle the playoffs.
“What integrity means in the context of a playoff tournament, there’s a couple different aspects to that. Is a single-elimination game in the context of our sport, is that really fair? And maybe it is fair, but maybe it’s fair in some contexts of the playoffs and not in others. So you want to come up with a format that you think is fair for the participating teams but also has integrity in terms of producing a deserving winner.”Daly via NHL.com
