I agree with the last statement. Too much gimmickry. 

 

"I believe let's keep it as traditional as possible. I'd love to see us jump to a 16-team playoff," Duchene said on Sportsnet 590, warning that too much gimmickry in the playoff format would be detrimental. "You don't want to have a 'COVID Cup,' and I'm worried that if we force this thing and try and it's a little gimmicky and it's not quite right, whoever wins the Cup is gonna have people try to take it away from them for their whole lives, and guys don't deserve that."

Montreal and Chicago being included is embarrassing.  Not surprised though, this is what NHL is with Ratboy at the helm.

Embarrassing as in they weren’t making playoffs and if it was SJ and NJ instead of Montreal and Chicago markets Ratboy wouldn’t care.
