2020 – June 19
The NHL is still on pause. Which making predictions very complicated. These rankings are based on trends heading into and during the NHL pause. I did not add any statistics because after this time off they have become slightly irrelevant. NHL camps are schedule to get back going on July 10th with the season to follow a few weeks after that. A modified playoff format will be used (bracket below) which will include a qualifying round and a top team seeding round robin. Games will be played at two hub cities. I am excited to see how this playoff format plays out.
