The NHL Covid Protocol Thread


Recommended Posts

It's possible that the NHL changes their protocol to allow players that are positive but show no signs and are feeling well to play. Players going to China have a huge decision to make because if they go over and test positive they wont be able to come back for a length of time and also lose money from not being able to play game for their contracted teams

No way they allow Covid+ players to play. That would be reckless and, likely in some jurisdictions, negligent. The NHL does not want to fight the various levels of Gov't and the PR issues it would cause.

I think the NHL will cancel participation in the Beijing Olympics. I'm down with that anyway, Covid or no Covid. Screw the CCP.

When does the NHL go back to having some spare players at the ready for each team?
