Speculation ( I think I read it in the NY Post which is a fascist rag but does have a great sports section ) is that the NHL will have to do something along the lines of holding an almost everyone's invited playoff.  The exception would be Detroit which is so bad that they were already eliminated.  That would leave 30 teams and they could either seed #1 v #30, #2 v #29, and so on or else do the same thing by conference.

Ultimately they'll just puck around.

They've yet to cancel the baseball season, but I suspect it's only a matter of time before they do.

That wouldn't be such a bad idea.

Quote:This is the message, until it’s not.
As the NHL and the Players’ Association tried to figure out the details for what this “pause” in the season might look like in light of the coronavirus pandemic, commissioner Gary Bettman reinforced the uncertainty.
“Nobody knows how long the hiatus may be,” Bettman told the AP on Friday, one day after the league suspended operations indefinitely. “This isn’t an independent determination. We’re going to have to rely on others as to when it’s safe, which is why people can speculate, but nobody can predict with certainty.”

Same thing's happening here in Australia.  All major and minor sporting events have been cancelled or
postponed until further notice.  For people like me—couch potatoes—this is ultimately good news, and
puts a dent in the corporatist-controlled "god" of sport, and also the gambling companies that effectively
strip billions of dollars from punters who can't really afford it.

The people I do feel sorry for are the kids who'll be deprived of their healthy, outdoor sporting pastimes,
as the government has limited any/all public gatherings to 500 people maximum.

Some sports teams—cricket, footy, rugby, soccer—are playing matches to empty grandstands here. Some
medicos have questioned even that scenario, asking what about the players themselves, who may transmit
the virus by means of the bodily fluids inevitably produced, such as sweat, saliva and blood, coupled with
often intimate physical contact.  Is it fair to expect, maybe 36 teams players, to accept this or void their
seasonal contracts?
