Every team should have to follow the same guidelines.

 

8 weeks of full benefits, guessing he three that in to sound a little less cheap. Knowing no one can use those benefits if places are closed.

 

Hope they lose some fans because of this.

I'm wondering if the Canadians team could do something hockey-wise despite the NHL season being suspended. Canada is trending vastly better than the US and should be recovered sooner. If the Canadian teams were to have a play-out of 7 teams down to 4 and then do a 7 games series for two rounds, I be so down. Increase rosters to 25 players, get the sign-off from players, agents and insurance, pay them salaries and get it done.  Call it Canada fights Corona or something stupid. 

 

I just want some hockey.

That makes 3 players tested positive.

 

Their statement says that they were only advised today.  So everyone in contact with him only know now that they might have been infected?  

 

From their statement:

The Colorado Avalanche were advised today that a player has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. The player has been at home in isolation since the first symptoms appeared, has recovered and is back to normal. The Avalanche have notified anyone who has had known close contact with the athlete.

Just cut out New York, the rest of America isn't that much worse.  Cut out the next 4 states too.  New Jersey, California, Washington, and Michigan.  No real contenders in the whole bunch.

Why not just cut Bettman’s salary by 100%. Not like he does anything anyways.

He jitters and head shakes and nods quite a bit. Gotta be worth something?

I get where you are coming from and the owners should step up but they are more accurately a zero dollar league right now. 

Tell that to the cheapskate Jacobs.....

The day that Roger Neilson  took over as Head Coach and led the Canucks to the Stanley Cup Finals!

2nd Avalanche player tested positive.  Their statement:

 

The Colorado Avalanche were advised late last night that a second player has tested positive for COVID-19. The player is in self-isolation. All other Avalanche players, staff and others who might have had close contact with the player have been informed and remain isolated as per prior League direction and are monitoring their health and will be in touch with Club medical staff as necessary. No other Avalanche player or staff member has shown symptoms at this time.

Seeing as it's Covid related, I'm guessing this query will be in the correct forum. So............

 

Other than the signings and such regarding prospects, are NHL teams during this special time restricted from doing trades and such? Is there a date in which they can do such? I presume it all rides on whether or not the season resumes, but I'm thinking the season's done for 2020. No playoffs...Nuthin'.

Trades are always allowed (except during the freeze during Christmas) even after the trade deadline.  The caveat is that players acquired after the trade deadline aren’t eligible for the playoffs. This will be an odd offseason because officially the season is only postponed right now
