Doc Emrick retired today, big loss for you guys down in the states

He was probably a top 5 pbp guy ever imo

I've always thought hockey would more popular in the US if you just used the TSN feed, but Doc was always exception, I'd watch plenty of finals games on nbc over sportsnet because hes better than hughson

Bettman says plan to start new season on January 1, perfect

This draft gets real interesting at 2, byfield or stutzle for LA

Top 8 seems set in terms of being where the first tier ends, but in what order?
Still planning a New Years Day start?

Saw yesterday the PA leaking to a few guys they want an answer in the next few weeks, especially if training camp would start in december

Think it's still deciding how they were gonna do it is hold up, whether its gonna be split with divisional only, I.e is a canadian division only necessary with the border issues

Wonder if vaccine news today about the moderna one changes that too, if they think delaying a month gets fans in?

Nhl doesnt have the issue with july/Aug Olympics like NBA, so I dont think they would hate delaying a month or so if it meant they could do a normalish schedule

We may have some issues

Supposedly league is trying to push in some higher escrows on a 62 game season over 4.5 months

Players are pissed because they signed a new CBA literally 5 months ago which was supposed to factor in pandemic losses

Some talk that some players wanna just wait out a few months, we can get fans in the stands with a vaccine, so they get more money

I like the seals.

the ducks one is hilariously bad

Sabres yikes
Sabres if they had the regular logo and took the buffalo part out could look so good too

Ducks is a joke lol

Wings looks like a practice jersey that may be the worst... if not for the jets going gray

Lebrun saying this is a big week

I dont think January 1 is happening, maybe 5%

League and owners are basically in same position as mlb was earlier this year, they want to play a shorter season, with no fans, a 48 game season makes way more sense than 82, 72, or 60. It saves them money.

Players wont want to give up more escrow right now, since they just signed deal 6 months ago. But they know owners cant outright cancel.

Gonna hear a bunch of hot air between both sides the next few weeks, and we have a 48 game season start either late january or the week after the super bowl. They have said they wanna be done by mid July at the latest, they dont want to compete with olympics and NBC definitely doesnt want that, although like I said above they could literally end the day before, don't need s break like nba does

We will see 4 divisions, 1 all Canadian, 3 american, and then they stay in division for the first 2 rounds, and meet up for the final 4. With the hope that crowds can start to trickle in as season goes on. Although some owners are pushing for a 1 year 1-16 ranking playoffs, which could be fun, which means it wont happen.
