    NBA today suspended their entire season.

    wonder if nhl follows suit?

    also, as a season ticket holder I wonder what is going on. No updates at all besides the city recommended no gatherings over 1,000 people - but that’s likely to change soon/any day.

    Very tough situation. Sucks.

    I feel like this is such a big deal in Caps/sports now that this (unfortunately) deserves its own thread

    NHL will definitely follow suit.

    Just a matter of time.

    Sounds like the NHL is going to take it day by day.

    Empty arenas until a player gets it

    Again, just trying to find a brightside here.

    The Caps have a pretty good cap situation going into next season. If the cap decreases because of the loss in revenue, the Caps will come out of it better than say a team like Toronto.

    They need to suspend the season now. It sucks but they have to be safe about it.

    NHL will suspend and puck up with playoffs in June. Modified format. Too 4 in each conference and shorter series

    Caps will win their 2nd Cup — and it will have an asterisk next to it like the Redskins ‘87 Bowl did.

    Cancel the season and have the playoffs in the summer seems like a good idea.

    Top teams by points right now get in. Play -in game if there's a team that could get in with their games in hand.

    I doubt they will be playing tomorrow. At the conclusion of today's games I reckon they'll announce they are suspending until further notice. Hope I'm wrong though.

    I just want them to finish the regular season.

    Ovi needs those games for the record.

    He already missed 1.5 season.

    Yeah I hope they at least get a few more games but I'd would be very surprised if they are able to finish out the regular season. Such a shame.

    The answer is simple.
    1) Commandeer a small town in the north of the continent which has a hockey rink.
    2) sterilize it and transport all NHL players and staff there.
    3) lockdown the town so no one gets in or out.
    4) play the rest of the season end to end 24/7 on the one rink.

    I’m happy to chip in for this content.

    NHL will follow the NBA today. We're on a 2-3 month cycle right now. I think a short playoff will happen in June.

    I think if you have a good immune system you will just spreading disease instead of getting symptoms. That's why I think quarantine won't help much. There are probably a lot of ppl infected on the streets. IMO

    Yeah, even if it doesn't affect you that much, you are still a carrier that could hurt loved ones, family and friends. Especially older people or even younger people with pre-existing conditions like me :/

    Doc explicitly told me to shut myself in for a while.
