Hockey Notes On A Saturday

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

- I don’t care where the NHL games will be played. I don’t care which cities are hub cities. This gets way too much conversation. I want to see games. I’m fine with playoff hockey on August nights and maybe afternoons, no matter what the format is, no matter what city they play in.

- The highest paid forward on the Blue Jackets, Cam Atkinson, makes less money than William Nylander.

- It will be at least eight months, maybe more, before we see Drew Doughty play hockey again. If we can’t see him, maybe it would make sense for a national network to hire him for this apparent hockey comeback so we can at least hear him

The highest paid forward on the Blue Jackets, Cam Atkinson, makes less money than William Nylander.

Cam Atkinson got his most recent nearly $6M contract on the back of two 40-point seasons.

Nylander is getting $1.5M a year more on the back of two 60-point seasons.

Somehow it’s a bad thing that Nylander came I to his own before Atkinson did?

I totally agree about the point of not caring where the games will be played.  Without fans in the stands, then it’s just boring logistical dumb stuff that REALLY doesn’t mean anything to me.  I get that sports journalists have to fill the time discussing and debating *something*, but at least make it something of some relative interest to the fan.

Yeah I guess they could play in S. Dakota if they want to stay away from Covid.  How about Anchorage?
