NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly is leaving the door wide open on how things may look if the league’s suspended regular season ultimately resumes.
“I’m really not positioned a week into this to rule out anything,” Daly said, according to The Canadian Press. “The possibilities on how this plays out and what we’re able to come up with as an end to the 2019-20 season is almost endless.”
The NHL, NHLPA, and Board of Governors have explored numerous scheduling options since everything came to a halt March 13 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. However, Daly recently said one of the league’s top priorities is ensuring the 2020-21 schedule isn’t compromised.
Some trusted sources are tracking exactly when fans can get back to watching their favorite sport.
I will admit, life without sports sucks! However, at this time the best I see, is a shorten best-of -3 playoff hockey format, and that is still at least 3-months out.
The NHL doesn’t have a clear timeline on when things may resume but announced earlier this week that all players must self-quarantine through at least March 27.
