On Headline Sports podcast with Marko:
#1 With a soft opening and patient numbers going down at least in the Bay Area would you say hockey is still a long, long, way off from returning?
#2 NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly in an interview with 630 CHED in Edmonton saying that testing would be the key issue to coming back. “We will not test asymptomatic players ahead of symptomatic people who are unable to get tested. It’s just something we will not do.” Said Daly.
#3 San Jose Shark Joe Thornton’s daughter Ayla did a video with her father standing by with a full beard and then the next without his beard when Ayla played a genie who tapped her head forward and gone. The Thornton beard was a staple for the longest time and since there’s no hockey and no growing a playoff beard necessary off it came.
#4 The Florida Panthers forward Grigori Denisenko was signed to a three year entry level contract with the Panthers. Denisenko was the No.15, 2018 draft and came out of the Russian 2020 World Juniors, he had 12 points, six goals, six assists in 38 games last season.
#5 The former Montreal Canadiens Georges Laraque says that having Covid-19 “is the worst thing ever” Laraque says he could remember being able to go running for miles two weeks ago and do many things. At 43 and retired he says having Coronavirus is a struggle just to brush his teeth because the disease has attacked his lungs. He did receive well wishes from many former and active NHL players.
