NHL season to start Jan. 13 with 56-game season

The current restrictions in BC include no indoor sports for adults, and that goes until January 8th.  If that gets extended, I wonder if the Canucks will have to play their home games elsewhere, like the 49ers are currently doing.

I was thinking the same thing but after reading the PHO, it states that Professional athletes are exempt.

 

Sport exemptions

High performance athletes, professional athletes and professional performers like dancers are not included in the order.

 

I didn't see the exemption.  Good catch.  Thanks!

56 games is probably enough to have the standings more or less representative of a full season. That said, I think bottom teams could have a hot start, so you might see the basement dwellers have a different order.

The opinion that if it's similar to NFL, we would be degenerates for watching?

 

:picard:

"fantasy degenerate" is a term I use with my buddies who gamble and play tons of fantasy sports. Wasn't meant for anyone who chooses to watch the NHL in this shortened season. I will try and take your sensitivity into my future posts....

A hot start is going to be critical if we have the Canadian division. Should make the games that much more exciting.

I think you touched a nerve.

 

Give it a chance tho, the 48 game season when CHI won the cup was pretty good.

Call me a pessimist, Christmas and New Years will see a spike in covid and probably take 6-8 weeks to get down to an ok level. 

I want to see hockey, but I doubt it's going to happen. Unless there's a series of bubble arenas. So does that mean they play the other 6 teams in Canada 9 times? (54 games?)

That would give us a taste of the original six era that's for sure.

 I fail to see how someone who plays fantasy is a degenerate, but ok.
