Shhh, No Talking

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

NHL general managers won’t be doing much, if any, talking about Friday’s conference call with the league on which the terrain for the 2020-21 season was discussed, because they were advised on the call not to comment.

Alrighty, then.

But no such gag order has been placed on The Post, so here is a review of issues taken up on the call, per a source:

— The NHL is still aiming for a Jan. 1 start, even though the scheduled New Year’s Day Winter Classic at Minnesota has been canceled.

The objective remains to play a full 82-game season with full arenas, but the league understands that is not likely. The NHL is monitoring the state of COVID-19, travel restrictions between the United States and Canada and within the U.S., and regulations concerning indoor mass gatherings. In other words, which teams would be allowed to have fans in arenas, and how many?
