There are many options on the table when it comes to potential formats for completing the NHL season.
One of ideas being discussed would involve the NHL scrapping the remainder of the regular season and moving to a 24-team playoff format, which could either include the top 12 teams in each conference or the top six teams in each division.
Another idea is a March Madness-style tournament with all 31 teams potentially playing single-elimination games, or best-of-three series, since Bill Daly said last month that the NHL moving to single-elimination rounds would be unlikely.
When presented with both ideas on Darren Dreger’s Dreger Cafe on Tuesday, Sidney Crosby said he’d prefer a 24-team format.
