    Commissioner Bettman discusses season restart, Draft scenarios
    Provides update on possible plans in interview with Sportsnet
    by Nicholas J. Cotsonika @cotsonika / NHL.com Columnist
    As many as four NHL arenas would host three games each per day without fans in one of the scenarios the League is considering to finish the season, Commissioner Gary Bettman told Sportsnet on Wednesday.

    The NHL, which paused the season March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus, also floated the idea to the general managers of holding the 2020 NHL Draft in June before the season ends...

    ...
    The NHL has decided against playing in non-NHL arenas at neutral sites because League arenas are best equipped to handle its needs if it decides to centralize games.

    "We can't play in a small college rink in the middle of a smaller community, because if we're going to be centralized, we need the back of the house that NHL arenas provide, whether it's multiple locker rooms, whether it's the technology, the procedures, the boards and glass, the video replay, the broadcasting facilities," Commissioner Bettman said.

    The NHL would need four NHL-caliber locker rooms in each arena, because if it plays three games per day in one arena, it would need to use appropriate sanitizing procedures as teams move in and out, the Commissioner said.

    Commissioner Bettman stressed the number of cities and the locations have not been decided. The NHL is modeling to make sure it is prepared for any eventuality.

    "Maybe it'll be two cities," the Commissioner said. "It's not something that we can predict right at this moment. But this is part of the contingencies. It doesn't necessarily have to be by division, although the centralization may be by division.

    Shit, the players would probably rather get covid than spend any length of time in Edmonton.

    Its the best option just based on cases of covid being low and the new hotel they have at Roger's but at least the ice is good

    I mean, at least the logoset is decent considering everything else, but holy hell what a dogshit name for a pro team. Would expect something like this from a AA baseball team

    I like it. Better than the Grinders.

    Fun fact: the Seattle Metropolitans were the first team to win the Stanley Cup outside of Canada.

    I really like everything but the team name. The jerseys are pretty sharp.

    finally hockey returns
    did I read there are ZERO cases of covid in the remaining teams in the yoffs?
    that's because the other stick and balls guys are filthy, selfish slobs with no morals.
    and wait a minute, no one took a knee during the anthems.
    real sports.

    I don't think I've ever been so excited to watch an exhibition game in my life.

    They really should have went with the Rain City Bitch Pigeons

    Alright, I didn't pay attention to the format that they're using this year. Do all the teams have play in series? I thought the top teams were getting a by but I see that Boston is playing Tampa on Sunday.

    Top 4 teams (each conference) are playing a round robin for seeding.
    West: Blues, Avs, Knights, Stars
    East: Bruins, Bolts, Caps, Flyers

    They need some competitive games so they don't go in cold vs a team that just played in the qualifiers
