Seattle has an NHL team name...

Post by eddiecanuck » Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:34 pm

Not sure if there are any hockey fans here, but Seattle finally announced the name and colors for the new NHL franchise.

They won't start until the 2021-2022 season. And I already have a team, but will be fun to see how they do. Hope to get over to see a few games.

Agreed!
The NHL is doing a modified finish to this season starting this weekend. No fans, hub cities, bubble living, etc. Hopefully they can pull it off. I'll be watching at home.
The AVP, beach volleyball, started a couple weekends ago with similar restrictions. So far, no cases reported. But still not the same. Hoping next year it's all a go.

I hope they do better than the MLB.

The Marlins have over a dozen cases so far amongst team and support staff.

I heard that yesterday. I haven't looked into it, but I don't think they are centralizing their games, just no fans, masks, etc. That will make it more difficult to contain things.

NBA is all quarantined at Disneyland I believe. Except for one player who left on approved leave for a funeral, then went to a strip club "for the wings". He's now isolated for 10 days and will miss a couple games.

NHL reported no cases after a week of practices. They just moved into their hub cities and start preliminary games today. Crossing my fingers it all goes well.

I appreciate the distraction of sports. I hope this means we can watch nhl without jumping through hoops now.

The name and logo are pretty cool
