On Headlines podcast with Matt:
#1 24 teams eight to nine sites for the Stanley Cup Playoffs is it an idea that most likely will get off the ground by June 1st?
#2 How rusty will the players be after having two months off?
#3 How bad of an idea is it to travel by plane to a province or a state that doesn’t practice sheltering in and social distancing for the playoffs?
#4 NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman also suggested playing in one location for a dozen teams with a schedule that would more or less reflect a March Madness format but with best out of seven series.
#5 Bettman is on the push to get this going because the owners want to get something for their money rather than pay players who didn’t play at all.
