    Question NHL To Shut Down Wednesday, 5 Games Postponed

    Thought this league was mostly vaccinated.


    The decision to begin the break early comes a day after the NHL and NHLPA issued a joint statement announcing they were attempting to avoid a leaguewide shutdown by making decisions on a team-by-team basis. The holiday break was previously supposed to run from Friday to Sunday.

    Of the 49 games postponed, 44 have occurred over the past two weeks with the delta and omicron variants spreading across North America.

    More than 15% of the league’s 700-plus players are in virus protocol, and the resulting schedule disruption almost certainly has doomed the possibility of Olympic participation. A final decision on the Beijing Games is expected this week, and the odds of NHL players returning to the Olympics for the first time since 2014 have cratered.

    I was looking forward to seeing the NHL players in the Olympics. But it isn't safe.

    With practically everybody vaccinated, what isn't 'safe' about it?

    Not to mention that if a player tests positive, they'll be in quarantine for WEEKS. Forget about getting into any game.
