If/when an NHL season happens, how much of an advantage do you guys think it is for teams that have had groups of players playing together on the farm team?

I think it could have a significant impact at the start of a shortened season. though other players have been playing elsewhere they will have to readjust their games to their teammates and linemates, while a few teams will be able to import blocs of players who have been working together for months.

In the end true talent will win out, the best players will emerge as the best players, but in a shortened season a handful of points at the beginning of the season, due to chemistry, could significantly alter the playoff picture.
