    Seems the 7 non playoff teams will get an extended training camp when hockey does resume https://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/2041777

    Then you have a situation where players are away from home for a very long time. There has been talk of a Canadian-only division to prevent border crossing which would solve that issue. I wonder if they'll try and convince to players to take a hit on salary to keep expenses down. Owners and players do share revenue 50/50. Perhaps they'll be asked to "share" deficits as well? My guess is whatever gets worked out will lead to a CBA extension that gives players some stuff back.

    I certainly hope we get a 20/21 season. It's just gonna be a tall order, albeit not impossible, to convince many owners to take that loss on the chin up front.

    Everything I said is based on if's. At no point do I say we will or will not have hockey. I'm merely saying it's silly to think the league is somehow gonna triple or quadruple their next TV deal when evidence in the wild says otherwise. Some owners themselves have stated they can't afford the cost of business without fans. At no point to I establish a timeline on when fans can return, so no, my argument has nothing to do with predicting when things will be back to normal. Stick with the discord circle-jerk if you have nothing of value to offer here.

    Tell that to owners who have already stated they cannot afford a season without ticket sales. I'm just going by what's been said in recent news over a guy on the internet speculating out of his ass about tripling or quadrupling their current TV deal. The finals couldn't even outdraw wrasslin' on Friday nights, and they just recently got a $205 million per year deal from FOX. Would love to see how the NHL will somehow get 600+ million per year based on deciding to play this season. Sure, the TV deal will be better if they play. But triple to quadruple? C'mon now. Bottom line: they still have to convince owners to take huge losses to play this season. IF they take a year off, they'll still have the more lucrative Rogers deal to fall back on. Owners will likely be more willing to take an annual hit on an NBC deal if they can wait for fans to return. We're talking a potential hit on a 200 million TV deal split over what will be 32 teams. Say they only get $150 million on their next deal. That's 50 mil lost split over 32 teams over x number of years. Many owners may be more willing to swallow that pill than losing at least tens of millions of dollars to play the 20/21 season.

    Needing money is why we might not get a season. NHL is very gate-driven as far as money goes. Many teams can't afford the cost of operations without ticket sales.

    He was 10x worse in Discord. Thing is, s*** posts like his will actively prevent many new users. Things will pick up as the team gets better again. Just the way it goes. We don't need him here deterring people. He already has long time posters questioning why they bother coming back here. But yeah, Lou is on crack if he thinks he can dump Boychuck for anything less than a first.

    Glendening is not gonna get dumped like that. He's gonna be one of our most sought after free agents at the deadline. You want the highest picks possible at the deadline? You keep Glendening. Helm will fetch a decent return as well. Filpulla and Neilsen are who you get off the roster. Not glenny and helm.
