TSN Insiders Today

Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Darren Dreger and Pierre LeBrun have the latest on the NHL's priority to finish the regular season in some format, how the general managers feel about a number of possible playoff scenarios, and the CHL making contingency plans for 2020-21.

Watch at TSN.

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic,

Before anyone gets too attached to any of the varied scenarios and formats being bandied about in the event the NHL does find a way to resume the 2019-20 season, understand a rather important fact: the NHL would much rather play some regular season games before heading to the playoffs, if time permits.

“We understand that with what will obviously be a lengthy break between games, players are going to want to have an ability to re-acclimatize themselves to NHL competition before having to play games that could end their seasons quickly,” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Athletic via email Thursday.

“I’m sure our managers feel the same way. We get it and we will certainly go to great lengths to accommodate those concerns.”

Hey, Paul, how much of a pain is it to embed video from TSN? Their site never works for me. If it’s a hassle don’t worry about it, tho. Thanks!

Before Sportsnet won the major broadcasting deal in Canada, I have not seen an embed code from TSN.  They do on occasional post the video on the YT page.

I imagine you could create a code, but I play fair and only use what is supplied.

Right on, thanks! FWIW, I’ve tried using a VPN -> Canada and that doesn’t work, either.

All the TSN Insiders are not geo blocked.

I am in the US, no VPN and no issues all season.

Right on, I’ve tried 3 different browsers, and they all fail on various levels. No worries, I’ll live without!
