Gary Bettman and Bill Daly press conference just concluded. 1pm--1:45pm Sat. Sept. 19 / 2020..

-no set time for next season but will be 82 games.

-Have had ongoing discussions with the other major leagues throughout the crisis.

-Gave full marks to Canada. Were instrumental making the playoffs work.

-No set plan in place for spectators in buildings when play does return. Could be none, could be all or anything in between.

-Seattle franchise will not be delayed in any way.

-Islander will be healthy with the completion of their state od the art new building, (not worried).

-No plans for any further "bubble" situational play.

-Acknowledges attendance is at least 50% of revenue, so there will be a hit.

-Bitches about how little sleep he's had, numerous times.......
Gary Bettman says the NHL has administered more than 30,000 COVID-19 tests with teams inside the bubble, and still hasn't had a positive result.

Barring any last minute changes, here is an overview of the upcoming important NHL Off-season dates.

All dates are based on the 'Critical Dates' calendar found in the MOU, and take into account the newly released schedule for the SCF which can end no later than September 30th.

Commissioner Gary Bettman says NHL is targeting a start date of Jan 1st 2021 for next season.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
