at the end of a period of internal discussion, voted in favour of the players in the league in a week by his trade union and the NHLPA for the restart of the league. In the vote, approved the format, with 24 teams and a play-set, with an accompanying play-off, but it is still unclear as to when the league might be able to start it up again, and the match was to be played.
this is raised, however, a number of voices that are critical of the decision.
- Eric Staal has expressed his skepticism in a video call with several reporters on Friday.
" It's hard for me to imagine me to come back and play in a city far away from my family for several months, but the fans in the stands. It is very difficult to see in front of them. But on the other hand has been a lot that have been difficult to predict in the recent past, " he said.
the Two teams have voted against the motion,
out Of all the 31 teams that play in the NHL, only two, however, voted against the format with 24 teams. According to the national hockey league (NHL reporter Nick Kypreaos should have been in the Carolina and Tampa Bay, both of which were already in the slutspelsplats.
as Of The This explains the Lightning forward Alex Killorn, the team's line of reasoning.
" Everyone in the team wants to play. However, we do not think it is fair that a team that probably had not been able to get to the finals get a second chance, " he said.
The top four teams of the table in their respective conference, will be hosted for the åttondelsfinalerna. Also, this is a concern, the Tampa Bay area, which last year won the regular season by far, and then sudden fall, with a 4-0 win in the first round of the playoffs.
"We feel that it is a team that's been available is not going to be as well-prepared for the playoffs, which is of the law, which is, in principle, already have been playing for a season in order to get there," says Killorn.
Forced to leave their families,
the Format is one thing. But then there is the question of whether or not the league should be restarted at all.
Sara Civian, Carolina Hurricanes-as a reporter at The Club, is on the same line as Eric Staal and calls into question the fairness of forcing the player away from their families for an extended period of time.
”If they can get back to hockey in a way that feels authentic and that's for sure, so I'm up for it. However, to resolve the fathers of their new born baby for months, only for us to be able to make even more money? I can live without hockey,” she writes on Twitter.< https://www.instagram.com/p/B91lAappXMF/?utm_source=ig_embed
