Taking A Look At The 24-Team NHL Restart

Shoutout to NHL News Twitter for sharing this handy picture of how the NHL season would continue if it started today. Take a look:

Off the bat – I’m a Stars and Hawks fan – if the Blackhawks beat the Edmonton Oilers and play the Stars, I will be screaming at the top of my lungs because I cannot deal with that. I want the Hawks to win a 4th but I need to see Jamie Benn lift the Stanley Cup before I kick the can so, emotionally, that can’t be done.

As for some of the other match-ups, some seem too easy, like Pittsburgh would destroy Montreal (sorry Habs but let’s be honest here). Could you imagine if we have to watch the Maple Leafs take out Toronto and then get creamed AGAIN by Boston? Wild.

This is the one reason I wasn’t a big fan of the 24-team restart. Yes some teams, like the Blackhawks, get a chance BUT the matchups have drastic differences between them.

This is all hypothetical, of course, and I’ll take any hockey I can get.
