Serious… teams should have to forfeit. Now the Wild have to play 2 makeup games in already busy end of the season.
Why would they forfeit? This is the leagues policies they are following.
If the league is all about the health and safety of players. Then what about the health and safety of players when the league is trying to reschedule games in an already busy second half schedule.
Part of the postponements were encouraged by the players from what I heard. Some did not want to get stuck on the wrong side of the border for the Christmas break, so the NHLPA was fine with it. If they don’t go to the Olympics, there is a 2 week period that they could do something with. I think you will see more and more players start to bail on the Olympics soon, even before an official announcement. But, there are some, Ovi and some Europeans who are dead set on playing no matter what, so it will be interesting how that shakes out. Ovi was willing to go and miss NHL games before and his owner was ok with it.
