- Finding motive in reporting.
- Should Vegas, the team or the city, step up and challenge losing the hub city

not one Vegas player has tested positive, so that is a phony red herring by the league.
the real reason is $$$ money
the NHL is picking up the tab for all of this, and the canadian dollar is 72 cents, so the league saves 28% by playing in canada.
this stinks. because there is only a 2 hour time difference between Edm and Tor, but a 3 hour diff between Tor and Vegas. and there will be 6 games per day, 3 per hub. so there will be overlapping games, which stinks for the hockey fans.
that means that for example, if you are watching Boston vs Tampa, and then after the 2nd period ends, the Vegas game begins in Edm, so you will not be able to watch the 3rd period of the eastern game.
and ratings in the USA for western conference will be lower than they would have been if Vegas was the hub.
Just was discussing the time difference issue with my wife last night. Knew nothing about the Canada dollar issue. I actually feel better about the players safety in Edmonton, than here in Vegas. I think they will work out the TV schedule where we will see most everything. As long as I see all the Knights game, I’m satisfied.
how stupid does Robin Lehner look right now if this player vote passes in the next couple days?
remember, this dummy said on Mar 27, 2020—“there is ZERO chance that they would return to play this year”
I don’t think stupid is appropriate. Incorrect would be a better term. yes?
Motive is Money, money, money!
