    Please refrain from political posts. It is common knowledge that the Covid and protesting/rioting situations are much better in Edmonton than many places in the US so I agree that Edmonton and Vancouver would be good places for hubs but there is no need to keep posting about these issues, they are known to anyone that has turned on a tv in the last number of days/weeks and are against site rules.

    Is it really that many people though? I suspect we are letting more truck drivers through on a regular basis and I haven't really heard too much about truck drivers being a huge risk.

    They also had superstar Yao Ming that really helped with all of that.

    I just don't think the impact will be that bad. Especially considering the testing these guys will have to go through. Should be able to identify who is at risk before they are allowed to really do any damage.

    The other thing I'm curious about is if a player breaks the rules of the bubble and isolation(off the start). What rules are hub cities implementing onto these guys just in case they decide to be stupid

    Saw something the other day about the nba’s bubble. If they leave for any reason, they must quarantine for 10 days before they’re allowed back in. I would expect the NHL to have something similar that’s strictly enforced. That would, at least, motivate the players to take the bubble seriously. I don’t think it would be a problem for most of them but there are idiots in every group.

    Insider Trading: Could both hub cities be in Canada?

    Bob Mckenzie mentioning that Edmonton and Toronto are the new two frontrunners. From my understanding, Edmonton is confirmed and they're simply waiting on the work with the CBA to finish up so they can make one big announcement on everything.

    From my understanding they want a little more from Vegas so they are saying Edmonton as a negotiation tactic. I've heard from a source of mine Edmonton has only ever been a negotiation piece.

    What a useless post lol I just said there is no way in the world a league that needs revenue and players that need paychecks will ever stop play for 1 year , never mind 2 lol what the heck does your useless posts about the past have to do with what will happen now? They both know they are totally screwed if they ever stop play for a year because of money squabbles lol just stick to your lame posts and fear mongering on the covid thread lol

    There are about about 24,000 truck drivers coming into Canada every day. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. visitors are still crossing border into Canada each week

    The entirely of the NHL contingent is something like 2000 people. So there are 12 times as many truck drivers coming into the country literally every day.

    Just stupid for NHL or nhlpa even considering Vegas. The only reason i say this is because things will go such smoother if both hub cities are in Canada and much less chance of players getting any virus. This is not about safety to me because we all know every player that gets this virus will be just fine but if too many get it then it will be tough to continue with games since the players will be isolated from team once they get it. In fact i would call the NHL and nhlpa brain dead if a big city in the usa is chosen

    Umm that's not what it seems like to Bob Mckenzie... Even the NHL isn't stupid enough to put this Vegas

    That doesn’t sound very accurate compared to what other insiders are saying.

    I don't think McKenzie would ever accuse the NHL of doing something like that.

    No idea whether true or not, but I just don't see McKenzie throwing that out there. Too nice of a guy

    Owners always have the leverage since most are billionaires. Owning an nhl is a hobby to many. They earned their billions long before owning an nhl team.

    When NHL millionaires start stocking the grocery stores with bread and milk I'll rethink whether I want them here.

    Okay I can understand why he wouldn’t publicly accuse the NHL but why would he say Edmonton is the front runner?
