Our cruise refund shockingly only took 10 calendar days to fully hit my credit card. Others had been reporting waiting 45 or more days before they got their money back. I consider myself incredibly lucky....

Non playoff teams may play exhibition games since they could go 9 months without a game. It's up to the union.
7 - Non-Playoff Teams
8 - Play-In Round Losers

Seems like one could make a tournament around this with first round losers invited to the Draft Lottery and the rest seeded for draft positions. Seems like a win-win for all. Who wants to slog it out for 2-3 weeks of training camp only to lose and go home after possibly playing only 3 play-in games.
