The NHL Return and Hub Cities
The plan may not be perfect, but at least the NHL is ahead of the NBA and Major League Baseball in that it has an approved plan for return. Logistics must still be worked out as far as which quarantined locations will be chosen by the league. Brian and Cam discuss the various options. Edmonton, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas seem to be the most realistic possibilities.
