Say the Devils wanted to make a trade with a cap-crunched team, who might they target this offseason, whenever that is? A few targets around the league here. Who would you like to see? [The Athletic ($)]

If the league comes back with teams playing in empty arenas, get ready for a new world for broadcasts. Players are going to have to watch what they say with no crowd noise to mask some of their, uh, comments. [TSN]

Sportsnet’s Mark Spector reports that one popular postseason scenario the league is looking at would happen this way: “Assuming no regular season games get played, the most popular playoff scenario is the following: The Top 6 teams from each Division meet in one city. They would open with best-of-three series between the No. 1 and 2 seeds (to decide a Division winner), while No. 3 meets 6 and 4 meets 5 for the right to keep playing.” [Sportsnet]

Might the NHLPA finally have some leverage over the league at this point? Well, sort of. [ESPN]

I’ve been watching ESPN’s incredibly entertaining Michael Jordan documentary. It’s doing quite well, ratings-wise. Obviously a unique scenario with the footage available for this thing, basketball is king, etc. etc. But it got me thinking: What hockey figure would you like to see a similar style of documentary focus on?
