I don't want to be one of "those" guys but there's an important difference between "postponed" and "cancelled".  Which one is it?  There's a real chance the whole NHL might be suspended for a while.  I want to see more hockey, especially since we're on a roll, but I also want people to be safe.  I suspect that there are going to be a lot more disruptions.  We need to do what it takes to stop this annoying disease, and then get back to hockey.  GCG!

Good catch; didn't realize I was losing the distinction.

I don't think the owners or the league want to cancel any games.

The players and the PA are probably quite concerned with escrow v/v lost revenues, I don't know.

And thanks for responding, I think you are not only the first, but the only one.

So does this break hurt or help the Canucks?

Help.   Felt we were just getting lucky near the end.   This gives injured players time to get back to full health, and they can keep practicing and learn the new system better.    Absolutely helps.   From what Rutherford said, none of the players have and serious symptoms - mild or none.   About what you'd expect at this time given all the data too.

Do the players have to covid test every time they cross the border?

 

That would suck!

They had to do it every three days regardless.   Now it's every single day.   Small price to play the greatest sport on Earth in the greatest league on Earth.

This makes a lot of sense.  The only drawback will be a couple of back to back games later on.

I'm more surprised there's still 3 games scheduled to go ahead today.....

Get through the weekend they said to Jim. Why don’t we just postpone and start fresh in the new year. That makes too much sense for me
