from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,

They’re in this together.

The NHL and the NHL Players’ Association were headed down the stretch of another season of record-breaking revenues when they screeched to a halt March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus.

Suddenly, they faced a situation the League had not seen since 1919, when the Stanley Cup was not awarded due to the Spanish flu.

Not only did they come up with the Return to Play Plan, they hammered out a four-year extension to the NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement, relying on each other for their health and the game’s health now and into the future.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman called it perhaps an “unprecedented collaboration and problem-solving.”

“I wouldn’t even say it approached a negotiation,” the Commissioner said.
