Really, that's an interesting take. People are trapped in there home with zero real sports.. imo, if they are the only game in town, more fringe fans will watch.. hmmm.  Not sure if well get a chance to see..

hoping for those that still care you guys get the chance.

I watch very little hockey that doesn’t involve the Devils. I would watch any hockey they played right now.

So, finally learning more about the logistics of this new draft..

Only one lotto ball now? Can't jump past a certain point?

This just reeks of the league trying to help Detroit, much like they helped the Penguins with Crosby..

It just de-legitimizes the whole thing for me a bit. The NHL could at least TRY to hide the fact that they're helping the Red Wings out big time.

He might not be wrong though, WWE has still been putting out new content every week without fans and just had their worst rating ever on Monday...

There just might be lasting changes of what Americans consider important and what is frivolous novelty.  Going to be interesting.  NFL draft was huge. But that's the nfl

yeah I think the without fans thing is like watching paint dry even more so on TV. Having sat through the Titans playing in an empty building for years even though we were addicted to the team it was like sitting in a morgue. I personally just don't think you can generate the energy in an empty building regardless of who's on the ice, but that's just me   The NFL draft was a peak inside the players homes etc. I guess for some that was intriguing. I kind of understand that.

The American hockey league just cancelled the rest of their season and no playoffs. 

Smart move. I’m sure later today instead of wisely following suit, the NHL will propose a 31 team playoff contested in Idaho and Montana on outdoor rinks located on the property of Yellowstone National Park, with the players and staff quarantined in log cabins located on a deserted Indian reservation.

Detroit is really, really bad so if there's a team that the NHL should be helping out, it's them.  It's much better than a system that gives a really good team the opportunity to jump all the way to number 1.  This system also benefits the Devils.

Give me summer hockey so when I stop caring about baseball (aka after 3 games until the fall) I have something watch while waiting for my orders to drop

This is accurate, except that it's also going to be roller hockey. That way they can play all summer without worrying about that pesky ice.

Not quite sure, the players association has to agree to significant concessions that so far they have indicated they aren't necessarily open to around comp.  The typical rich arguing over money missing the big picture of the pain and suffering most normal folks are going through.

One clowns opinion and man is he getting roasted for it.

that’s actually pretty cool 

Interesting.  I skimmed through the article, but I imagine that something like this would be adopted at other places too.... specifically amusement parks - I can see it now, you're waiting on line to ride the Teacups, and you get misted with disinfectant.  Or you're shopping at Home Depot and after the plants in the garden center get watered, passersby get hit with disinfectant.  I don't know if I like the world we're living in anymore.  =/

I am not sure what you folks are reading, but my interpretation is it would be used to sanitize an EMPTY arena before/after an event, not to drop sanitizer on everyone during the event.

I admittedly only read the first 1-2 paragraphs.  However I like the image in my mind of them dropping disinfectant on families during intermissions.  Make sure to cover your $15 beers!
