  1. https://thesinbin.net/breaking-echl-delays-start-of-2020-21-season/
  2. I think they will start the season, because there is too much money on the table and too many bad things such as teams or even the league suspending operations, folding etc. The problem might be finishing it and them some of the same results may still happen. If I am an SPHL player who has already signed with a team or is considering doing so, I am also looking elsewhere also just in case the season winds up crashing again.
  3. I guess the ECHL will follow suit and move theirs to December as well.
  4. Add this rule to the list of 2020 strange occurrences.
  5. Gee thanks @JMC-STL Even though you are right.
  6. I do not envy anyone who is involved in selling tickets and lining up sponsors, because they have a very difficult job. Not only do they have to deal with the uncertainty surrounding the season, they also have to deal with businesses and individuals who may have to cut expenses for whatever reason. The first place they will look at is entertainment in general. I also find it difficult to believe a lot of folks will invest money until they see their team on the ice and some level of uncertainty is removed. Even then, the attendance issues which will exist with or without restrictions will deter some potential sponsors. As of now, it looks like the smartest owners from last year are the Kerzners, because they got out just in time. I wish I could be more positive but I cannot, because I think the league as a whole is in a major mess. There is one positive thing I can say and it is the NHL restarts this weekend.
  7. Mr. Murray mentioned using Knoxville as a hub city only for the playoffs as a way to shorten the amount of time it will take to finish them. He also suggested they may happen in May instead of April. I hope the season lasts that long. The hub concept still will not work, but it is not for the entire season.
  8. I reread the article and I do not see what you are seeing, so we will have to agree to disagree on this one. Maybe I am missing something. Either way we will not see our teams on the ice until December or later, so it really does not matter what he is lamenting.
  9. Is it possible to lament BOTH the circumstances and the decision?
  10. I wonder what makes them think things will be any better in December than they will be in October. I realize it is a target date that can be changed if needed, but I cannot see the state restrictions dropping. If the number of cases keeps rising, they are more likely to increase than decrease. Not only that but the only leagues I can see finishing a complete season are the ones who can use a bubble concept and that will not work for us. If a basically non contact sport like baseball whose players chose not to use the bubble concept could not make it through the first weekend without encountering problems, how is a contact sport like hockey in a league which due to financial impact can't use the bubble going to pull it off? I just do not see it happening.
  11. After today's events in MLB, I think I would look overseas. Here is a link to the story for those who may not have heard about this: https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29547211/two-mlb-games-postponed-marlins-outbreak. If that happens to an SPHL team and I do not see how it will not, the entire season could come to a crashing halt once again. It will be interesting to see what happens.
  12. Not very team needs a moderator. As far as I can tell, half the teams including mine do not have enough active members on this forum to warrant one.
  13. This according to Wikipedia(granted not the best source but the only one I could pull up): The kraken (/ˈkrɑːkən/)[1] is a legendary cephalopod-like sea monster of gigantic size in Scandinavian folklore. According to the Norse sagas, the kraken dwells off the coasts of Norway and Greenland and terrorizes nearby sailors. Authors over the years have postulated that the legend may have originated from sightings of giant squids that may grow to 13–15 meters (40–50 feet) in length. The sheer size and fearsome appearance attributed to the kraken have made it a common ocean-dwelling monster in various fictional works. The kraken has been the focus of many superstitious sailors passing the North Atlantic and especially sailors from the Nordic countries due to their proximity and its Scandinavian origin. What I do not understand is why the good folks of Seattle would name a REAL hockey team whether it starts in 2020 or 2030 after a FICTITIOUS part of Scandinavian folklore that is not even associated with the Pacific Northwestern U.S.A. But because I am really concerned with what they name their team, I am still gonna be .
