The cream always rises to the top eventually, but a shortened season creates greater parity among all teams with less games to create separation from the top to the bottom of the standings..

So that increases the odds of the playoffs for our Leafs. However the pitfall is that any smaller sustained losing streak(s) in a shortened season also dooms a teams playoff aspirations with less game to make up the difference thereafter.
