Franchise NHL / Re: 2020 Stanley Cup Predictions?
« on: August 24, 2020, 10:53:26 PM »
Islanders have made a strong statement with a 4-0 shutout in their first game against the Flyers.

Can PPG provide a post game comment? ;-)

Franchise NHL / Re: NHL names Seattle franchise: Kraken !!!!
« on: July 26, 2020, 01:54:58 PM »


I like the whole package for the Seattle Kraken. Nice jerseys. Good use of colors. A simple S looks great. And the name is a big winner in my opinion.

I do believe the potential for their alternate jersey is huge with a name like Kraken.

Franchise NHL / Re: PLAYOFFS ROUND 2: 2019-20
« on: June 14, 2020, 05:41:50 PM »
At the "PAUSE"
:DAL-NHL: 36.0 @ 58.85 :NAS:
:BOS-NHL: (ATL 2) 50.1 @ 54.15 :MON-NHL: (Div Winner 1)
:NYI: (wildcard 1) 27.45 @ :PIT-NHL: (MET 2nd) 33.45
:CLG: (wildcard 2) 27.85 @ :PHO: (PAC 2nd) 34.7

That's after 3 days of round 2, anything's possible. The suspense is driving me nuts. Really can't wait for more hockey. I might even be willing to settle for simmed FNHL games on someone's video game console.
Seems like a lifetime ago that we were in the middle of Round 2. I hope the NHL can get everything off the ground in July.

For PR and myself, given all the COVID-19 impacts on the NHL's revenue, the cap for 2020-21 will likely remain the same and possibly get cut back below the current 81.5m.

So I propose FNHL takes the initiative to decide the 2020-21 cap remain the same as the 2019-20 cap figure, 81.5m cap ceiling.

Thoughts? Jump in FNHL owners.
:iatp:
:CHI-NHL: Chicago management agrees with keeping the salary cap ceiling at $81.5m for the 2020-21 season.

As for the official season end date, I suggest mid-July as well given the need to re-start owner activity in this league.

Once the Commissioners set the end date for what would have been the day after the Franchise NHL Finals, we will have plenty of time for trades, contract extensions, and preparation for roll-over and Free Agency.

The NHL and teams are exploring various cities for this plan.

Franchise NHL / Re: 2020-21 NHL Season: PREDICTIONS?
« on: April 24, 2020, 07:41:59 PM »
My guess, the 2020-21 NHL season will be truncated and feature a 45 game regular season and full playoffs.

Shortened regular season to account for the delay to the 2019-20 season completion.

45 game because they've done something similar during the last labor dispute with 48 games in 2012-13.

The season will start in December with training camps and officially start mid-January as it did in 2012-13 with the 1st regular season game was played January 19th.

Playoffs will follow the regular format with best of 7 series.
:iatp:
Well done, PPG. I think you've got a winning plan there. The start of the 2020-21 in January with training camp in December makes good sense if the NHL is able to play the rest of the 2019-20 season starting mid-Summer.

I do not believe a tournament format for the NHL Play-offs in a limited number of cities would work as the home team would want to properly profit from their existing home games. A tournament format would mean rental of facilities and lost revenue for a home arena.

What would actually work is an NHL re-start with "pre-season" games played in select designated neutral cities while waiting for all NHL cities to lift guidelines for "no public gathers" and ensure enforcement of public health and safety measures are put in place to allow arenas to be filled safely. Having worked in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo during the SARS outbreak of 2002-03, I can say that screening and checkpoints are key to keeping COVID-19 in check.

This is what I feel strongly about. My personal feeling is that unfortunately, federal governments have already completed their modelling of economic impacts given various scenarios. The US and Canada who I follow closely are working towards the dump debt on the public, keep the banks in control of the general population and the party in office wins while banks and corporations win long-term with everyone owing them money while staying compliant in underpaid desk jobs for years to come. It's a terrible economic play by Governments.

The worst part of all this, the frontline workers in all essential services are going to be taxed heavily down the road because they are the only ones generating earnings these days.

All IMHO.

I find people are very dismissive of the situation and almost daring the virus to find them. The younger they are, the more daring seems to be the trend which is dangerous. Our company has asked everyone to work remotely and use video conference tools. I've seen empty store shelves for milk, tissue paper, paper towels and toilet paper. I've been ordering groceries online and tipping the delivery people generously for being front line.

Hope every Franchise NHL owner is feeling healthy and well.
