The Detroit Red Wings May Have Played Their Last Game This Season

The NHL is a business, and there are hundreds of millions of dollars at stake in finding a way to award the 2020 Stanley Cup. The Wings may lament the loss of revenue without the four home games they had left on their schedule, but given the situation, we’ve almost certainly seen the last of them this season.

That would be a mercy killing.

But big picture its the right thing to do.

Good lord, cancel the season already. This is going well into summer. Let’s hope next season can begin on time, let alone trying to squeeze games into this current situation.

I appreciate the league’s optimism, but this won’t be over any time soon. It’s more likely to threaten next camp in the fall than to run its course and be safe to play games this summer.

There’s a time for optimism, and a time for realism. Now is the time for the latter: The league will not resume play this season. We’re not even close to approaching a “flattening of the curve” at this point, and it’s time for everyone to realize this and stop with these short term delays to the inevitable.

Nice to see all the virology experts showing up to give their opinions.

No, just people who listen to experts and understand a modicum of how statistics work. There are plenty of people who do neither who are in positions of power in this country.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
