At Random: No Chance It’s January

At Random: No Chance It’s January

While the NHL, officially at least, is still hoping to start the upcoming season the first week of January, that seems a rather remote possibility for a lot of reasons, as I wrote two weeks ago. Right at the top of that list, COVID-19 doesn’t care what Gary Bettman and hockey fans want. For all the moving pieces – divisional alignment, determining the length of the season and where and how games will be played for starters – every potential plan depends on a pandemic we clearly don’t c
