    Default Grain of salt? Hockey back June 1

    According to the great John Scott

    https://www.hockeyfeed.com/nhl-news/..._wrSjkVlIsf9fM


    Not much news on it and nothing on NHL

    I will be perfectly fine if they pick 4-5 sites and finish the season with empty arenas. Not ideal but at least some live hockey back.

    Was on the 105 westbound from cypress to lax at 5AM this morning. Although traffic was flowing, the freeway was pretty packed.

    Point is, just from publi cpressure so to speak, can see this happening sooner rather than later.

    The difference being that these games won't be played in a packed arena. I don't think that's happening regardless of public pressure.

    Do they really need to play 82 games? Cut it off at 70 and start the playoffs,first round,best 3 out of 5. Who wants this season dragging into October?

    A question worth asking the players: You've all dreamed of skating with the Stanley Cup one day, right? What if, in that dream, the arena was empty? Would that diminish the moment in any way?

    Give the Kings the Cup now. They won the last NHL game played this season, right?

    Forgive me, I've consumed zero nhl content since the 'Rona lockdown; is this projected date due to the liability issue at stadiums? Or are there other factors?
