EDM, TOR, LV and CHI appear to be the final considerations.

I hope the Eastern conference hub is in the eastern time zone. Really don't want Rangers games starting at 11pm our time

Well if its Toronto, i'm pretty sure the Rangers are playing there, not Vegas. Wouldn't make any sense for the to play in the west

Well, the idea is that the East plays in a western city and the West plays in an eastern city so no team has home ice advantage.

Really? You were expecting a simple and logical decision? Based on what?

If the East plays in Toronto, then the Leafs get to live at home and play at their own arena. Not really fair for the other 11 teams. So this doesn't happen, there's been discussion that the East will play on the west coast and the West will play on the east coast.

It's likely a non issue, just play the games whenever since there are no fans. They can play games during the day to make it air at normal times etc.

I hope so. It makes sense, so you know it can't happen!

For the most part, I agree. I could see how the players don't agree though. "Why does Team X get to spend the next few months with their families in their own home, while my team is living in a hotel."

There are no fans, there is no advantage other than knowing their ice. But every team knows other teams buildings.

They've said you should expect teams to stay in their own region.

They aren't limited to local playing times for broadcasts thankfully, because there are no fans in the building anyway.

No.

If the hub is in Toronto, the leafs will have to stay in hotels like everybody else.

Did not know that...

I thought the Leafs, Hawks, Oilers and Knights would have had that luxury. But if they're all in hotels, it's not much of an advantage. There definitely will be a comfort level walking into the arena, but it's slim at best.

I can’t believe Chicago is still in the running...all they need is McDavid to get shot on the way to the United Center
