Lou Lamoriello Believes There Will Be Hockey This Season

from Andrew Gross of Newsday,

The uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic has left Islanders president and general manager Lou Lamoriello juggling many different plans for best positioning his team when the NHL season restarts.

That’s when, not if.

“I’m extremely optimistic that we will play at some time as far as this season,” Lamoriello told Newsday on Thursday. “Whether it’s in June, whether it’s in July, whether it’s in August, I’m not thinking about that. I’m just thinking, in my mind, knowing that we will play and using this time to get ready for that.

“But, prior to that, the most important thing is everyone staying safe and everyone doing the things in the best interest of their families because we’re in a different world today,” Lamoriello added.

‘Preciate the optimism, Lamo, but, no, there’s not gonna be a conclusion to the ‘19-‘20 season.  Just cancel it, declare no Cup Champs like in 1919, and move on until this Wuhan virus is completely contained.
