    I can't see it not happening at this point. Some things are way bigger than sports. Tough times.

    NHL Discussing Coronavirus Hiatus

    It’s coming. Season over, probably.

    I would think tonight could very well be the end of the season.

    Reports that the NBA just suspended their season. I can't find a hard confirmation yet though.

    edit - Adrian Wojnarowski has it. The NBA has suspended their season until further notice.

    This is going to happen unfortunately. Look at how bad it is in Italy at the moment. Now even one of the players on Juventus has been diagnosed. Not sure what a hiatus means to the regular season but I'd imagine the schedule gets shortened dramatically.

    With the NBA suspending their season, I don't see how the NHL doesn't follow suit.
    I was just watching the EDM/WPG game and during the intermission they were talking about it. Marek mentioned that the NHL is planning an announcement for later tonight. I wonder if we'll even see the Avs game.

    Dreger tweeted "Source: the NHL won't suspend play...at least not immediately."

    Might as well imo if they go to the no fans. If I were a betting man I would say it's inevitable.

    I'm guessing that would be the absolutely best case scenario.

    NHL will get so much backlash if they don't suspend the season

    Right. Aren't experts saying 12-18 months just to potentially develop some kind of vaccine? It's going to make it across the entire population by then.

    Grim, but at that point, wouldn't those of us left probably have either herd immunity or real immunity?

    Or have gotten it an and fought it.

    Vaccine isn't needed for a cure... Healthier people will fight it off naturally.
