So, the NHL has gone public with the framework, if not all that many details, of it plan for a return to play this summer.
What do you think about it, including the 24-team playoff format that will pit the Penguins against Montreal in one of the best-of-five qualifying rounds? You also probably heard a few days ago that Nick Bjugstad is scheduled to join Dominik Simon on the sidelines until next season after undergoing season-ending surgery. Considering how 2019-20 has gone so far, is anyone really surprised that the Penguins' run of bad injury news continues, even though they haven't played a game in nearly three months?
This is the place to discuss those things, and everything else to do with hockey.
