More from NHL memo: ``We again emphasize that Player participation in Phase 2 is strictly voluntary. In addition, Clubs are not permitted to require Players to return to the Club’s home city so they can complete a quarantine requirement in time to participate in Phase 2.''

Looks like maybe none of our players will be around these parts for a - Hi There! - No need. Virtual everything these days.

If this thing happens, will Canuck trainers and even medical staff get to go to "The Hubs" ? So many questions. Families? That's a long time to go without..... :oops: ....them.
Get off the scotchguard Gomer. Obviously the teams will have equipment trainers and medical staff. Pull your head out of your ass and start fighting for some air.

Relax Mick. Carol Schram did a nice job of breaking down what is happening to try and get the NHL to phase two:

• participation in Phase 2 is strictly voluntary

• teams are not permitted to require players return to their cities in order to complete a quarantine period before taking part in Phase 2 workout

• all players who travel by commercial air or public rail must serve a 14-day quarantine period before using team facilities; quarantines will also apply where required by local health authorities, which is the case across Canada, and for players returning from ‘high risk’ environments, no matter how they travel


• players who don't have permanent homes in their NHL city, including recalled AHL players, will be put up in hotels, and can bring their families if they choose to do so; they'll also be set up with rental cars, because they'll be forbidden from car-pooling or using public transit, ride-share or taxis to come to the rink

• testing "must be done in the context of excess testing capacity, so as to not deprive health care workers, vulnerable populations and symptomatic individuals from necessary diagnostic tests"

• at this point, individual clubs are responsible for securing approval from their local health agencies that this level of testing is available; the league says it's working to put a comprehensive testing program in place but it sounds like they're not there yet


• daily symptom and temperature checks would be required each time a player or team staffer arrives at the facility

• players who live in other NHL markets are permitted to use those facilities rather than travelling to their team's city; for example, I imagine that would mean that we might see players like Brendan Gallagher and Milan Lucic skating here in Vancouver, while Tyler Toffoli could skate in L.A. Clubs are permitted to deny requests from non-team players if it impedes their ability to provide services to their own players.

• players can only work out in small groups of six or less; permitted activities include non-contact skates with players only, weight training that doesn’t require a spotter, and other cardio and circuit-type training in the gym, as long as social distancing is maintained

• once a group is set, those players will continue to train together, in order to try to limit exposure to other people; the league is also suggesting that each group have its own separate support staff, with the suggestion that they bring in staff from their AHL club if more people are needed: "During Phase 2, Clubs must, to the extent possible, assign a unique Athletic Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Coach, and Equipment Manager, respectively, to each group of six (6) Players, so as to limit cross-exposure among groups."


• players will only be permitted in the facility during their assigned shifts; there will be time allocated for cleaning and disinfecting between each shift

• participating players may not skate or work out at any public facility, and cannot organize their own skates

• coaches are not permitted to participate in on-ice work, and will only be able to observe once a certain amount of time has passed

• 'No Player Access' team staff will be permitted in the facility if necessary, but will not be allowed to enter the same areas where the players are, or to touch anything that might be touched by players or the staff members who will have 'Player Access.'

• No outsiders!

"The following individuals are prohibited from entering the Club facilities during Phase 2:

a. Media
b. Player agents
c. Massage therapists
d. Chiropractors
e. Player Performance Personnel
f. Player’s family members
g. Any other person(s)"

• players and staff will be expected to respect social distancing guidelines, except in the case of necessary medical treatment; "Players shall be discouraged from socializing with one another in close contact while at (or outside of) the Club’s facilities."

• no team meals; players will be able to pick up pre-packaged meals to take home and eat; the only food that they'll be allowed to eat at the rink is single-serving products like granola bars and power bars


• no hot tubs, cold tubs or saunas allowed

Can you imagine The 5’-10” 260 lb Doyle in a hot tub? I imagine something similar to Borats buddy - Azamat.

Is Carol Schram worth a go? What does she look like?

Scroll to the 10 minute mark. That's where it gets good.

When you book your rooms at the Astoria, do you grab the one with the hot tub?

Relax Karen.

Must be nice to have an ego so large that you think a compliment for someone else had anything to do with you.
