  • Covid-19

    Might as well have a thread for this. It's now directly affecting NHL hockey, as all public gatherings for March have been banned in Santa Clara county. All events at the SAP Centre, therefore - including 3 San Jose Sharks games - have been cancelled for the month of March:

              This could have major implications for two big reasons I can think of:

              1 - Imagine being a team who dealt assets for rentals, like the Oilers. If the season and playoffs are cancelled, that's gonna leave a real sour taste.
              2 - You also don't get to participate in the draft lottery if you "made the playoffs" - even if you don't actually get to compete?

              Could Ottawa's big picks be in jeopardy?
