Just either want hockey or call the season.

Canucks remain hopeful home games in Vancouver will be allowed.
Iain MacIntyre

December 21, 2020, 7:53 PM
VANCOUVER -- The West Coast was getting soaked Monday, but one of the biggest torrents was the flow of Vancouver Canucks players returning from abroad for another extraordinary National Hockey League season. They just don’t know yet if any of their 56 games will actually be at home.

There is a lot of fine print to the NHL's return-to-play agreement with its players. But the blaring headline in Canada is: Where will they play?

With the American border still closed indefinitely and domestic travel advisories growing stricter, the Canucks and other teams in the all-Canadian North Division are still in discussion with provincial and federal health authorities for permission to play games home and away.

In British Columbia, hockey proved a tough sell last spring when the NHL was negotiating for sites to stage its Stanley Cup playoffs. Vancouver was in as the Western Conference bubble city until the league found health officials in Alberta more compliant.

But Canucks general manager Jim Benning remains hopeful this time ahead of more critical discussions this week.
Another part
The NHL and its players have agreed on more stringent travel guidelines.

On the road, players will be allowed to leave their hotel for walks and fresh air, but cannot enter a retail establishment. There will be no dining out, no shopping. All meals will be taken at their hotels, and air travel will be exclusively on chartered aircraft, essentially giving teams full control over their isolated environments while in transit. Players won’t be walking through crowded concourses or standing elbow to elbow with other travellers at the baggage carousel before lining up for taxis or waiting for their Uber.

And amid all this, unlike the rest of us, players will be tested and monitored constantly for COVID-19.
The comprehensive article continues.......There is also an 18+ minute radio discussion with MacIntyre.

NHL will be aggressive in trying new initiatives amid hunt to grow revenues
Elliotte Friedman
December 23, 2020, 9:42 AM
HELMET DECALS
You’ll notice that the first three sponsors — Capital One (Capitals); Prudential (Devils) and Bridgestone (Predators) — have their names on those teams’ arenas. This sponsorship is reserved for that kind of major partner. Teams are allowed to use one sponsor with the home helmets, another for the road helmets if they wish. (There is also the option of placing an ad on practice helmets.)
The dimensions are 2.5 inches high, and 3.7 inches wide. The equipment managers played a key role in this process, testing the ads’ placement on the three different helmets allowed by the NHL. The league wanted as uniform a look as possible.
VIRTUAL ON-ICE ADVERTISING
Any NHL television viewer is familiar with the area around the blue line where the league will stamp “Welcome back, fans” or “Stanley Cup Playoffs” on the ice. Hockey Operations isn’t crazy about this process, especially during the post-season. It wants the ice protected, not tampered with.

The exact details are still being negotiated with everyone involved (including the TV partners), but the league is working on projecting “virtual ads” just inside the bluelines. The technology necessary to do this is already being installed in arenas as part of the NHL’s puck-tracking system. SMT, the league’s partner in that endeavour, created football’s yellow first-down line.
The NHL will monitor fan reaction to these initiatives. Helmet ads sure caused a ton of social media debate, but I’m curious to see the reaction to this when it occurs.
EXPANDED BENCH SIGNAGE
There are already ads on the boards behind the coaches as they stand, but what’s also being discussed are ads on the glass. Over the holidays, an LED system will be tested, but there will be stiff standards against glare onto the ice and into the players’ faces, so that’s no guarantee.
If there are no fans in the building, no one has to worry about seeing through these ads. But see-through versions are also being examined.
EDGE WRAP On the glass, just above the boards. Six different configurations, including behind both nets. See-through. Two partners to share the opportunity.
TARP SEAT COVERS
If you watched last summer’s playoffs in the bubble, you saw these in the lower bowl. Neutral colours, no black so the puck is hidden from goalies.
Also Tuesday, the NHL announced a deal with Guaranteed Rate — now the league’s official U.S.-based mortgage partner. In the hunt to grow revenues as COVID vaccines are distributed through North America, the NHL is going to be aggressive in trying new things.

released today / 13:16 minutes.
Admittedly difficult to compare all the highlights and translate them in to what he will do in the NHL, but it looks very promising.
He is tenacious in getting the puck and seems to wait for the right play or pass. Also notice how well he keeps his head up!
Seems very aware of where his team mates are and conceals his intentions from the other team very well.

Itll be interesting to see how this kids' game translates to the North American ice. Will he start scoring and piling up the points when given the icetime and if so, will the russians change how they manage top young players?

It should be interesting
