Pumped for this to get started!

Not quite understanding the BC government position in not approving yet the plan for the Canucks thought - WTF? Even though we can't go to games, it would suck if they had to play outta some other Province :mad:

Agree.

Hope they can set up rotating hub cities. The East should have to travel and spend two weeks here, and vise-versa. I think there is a way they can do this, just need to be creative and absolutely vigilant w/ testing. 2 teams show here for 1.5 weeks, play a few, take a week to practice, next hub. Try to make the away time as much as a regular season, but with the safety of the HUB environments.

Crazy?

Correct me if I'm wrong but can't anyone in Canada currently fly into YVR and not have to isolate or anything?

My understanding is that NHL protocols are mandating daily testing.

I read somewhere that games will be like "mini-series"... a team flys in and plays 3 games against the home team, then fly out... maybe that has changed, need to find some time to dig into it all.

I watched interviews with Doug Ford of Ontario and Dix of B.C. and both are non-committal. Not sure what Quebec thinks, but Alberta is okay with the NHL proposal. Maybe we should all move to Alberta, only place where we can go to a casino and gamble away our savings after a hockey game.

This seems like it should be an easier one to figure out of all the hard issues our Provincial and Federal Governments have had to make. The sports teams have not been the big "Super Spreaders", even in the US. NFL, somewhat, but you can see the logistical difficulty in that sport of keeping the virus out, but even with all the factors, huge player numbers, huge number of player wives living in relaxed COVID states and carrying on with life as if normal, they still have managed it. I think in Canada, with the families following COVID PHOs, you can argue there should be no reason these players can't travel safely, play mini series' in established minim bubbles, and be OK.

FFS, I'd be more concerned w/ the staff at Best Buy right now.....

I saw the story that he and the Sharks were getting sued by a bank but didn’t put 2 & 2 together. Mostly because that’s really tough math for me.

why the hell would a team get involved in a players finances like that?
I guess it’s much like the go cement garnishing your wages to pay off your taxes.

still not as crazy as Jack Johnson’s parents ripping him off into bankruptcy though

Let me drop this right here for everyone. When the most hated Leafs fan says it and guarantees it, then it must be true
