The Latest Hub City Talk

Someone at my work brought up a good point : if the NHL’s primary concern was to isolate and protect these players from COVID while using an NHL city—thereby benefiting one of the owners—! they’d be playing in Winnipeg. He added that Applebee’s is really the only restaurant there so hope they enjoy that takeout.

This is about maximizing both media coverage and minimizing cost. These hubs were selected long ago. They are making the business decision to wait as late as they can to hope to extract another small nugget or having to change course because of an outbreak stressing medical resources in the chosen city.

Vegas/ Toronto. With alternates Edmonton, Chicago, and LA in that order.

Yet another thing Buttman has screwed up. Should have announced before MLB’s plans and had exclusive coverage.
