30. This depends on what happens with the border, but there is talk that Canadian-based NHL teams with U.S.-based AHL affiliates are considering moving them north of the 49th for the 2020–21 season. That’s Calgary/Stockton; Edmonton/Bakersfield; and Vancouver/Utica. It makes sense, because a quarantine period would mean you can’t call up players. Not sure if those teams would be based out of the NHL buildings or centralized, but it is something these three organizations must prepare for.
Hopefully things get better everywhere, that's all I can say!

The new target to start the AHL season is February 5 which is about as good as one could hope.

It's pretty obvious our better kids should be playing in Europe already.

They will get in 30 - 40 games and then playoffs.

Going to have to work hard for your ice time.
