Why don’t they run draft leagues of the people who want to play and make the league however many teams the can comfortably fill?

Yeah, the Florida part is the least surprising part of the story. But I won’t be shocked to see the same stuff happening elsewhere. I know some people in this thread think they’re totally safe by playing “private ice,” but it only takes one person. And at this point, I’m not willing to take that risk. If you are, keep on truckin I guess, and I wish you good luck.

I decided to play again because in my province of 5 million we're getting around 100-150 new cases a day. This is with school reopening.

Covid has shut down a ton of my social life so I view hockey as my one "risk activity" right now. My social bubble is very small, in no small part due to two of my closest friends having anxiety and they don't seem to want to see anyone right now for the most part.

So I'm trying to balance my mental health with the looming threat of Covid is all. You can bet if I was in Florida or some poo poo I wouldn't be playing though. Or anywhere in the US. It's loving astronomical how poorly the Trump administration has handled this.

As much as they want you to, you don’t have to justify your choices to anyone here.

Have fun. I am extremely jealous.

The only hockey I'm getting is loading up nhl.tv playing an old game and working out for an entire NHL period.

I mean that seems safe enough so long as there's adequate contract tracing and all going on. I'd totally be back playing if my state had that positivity rate per population.

But lol I live in South Carolina and we are a literal plague state.

Fun Shoe

I haven't been playing and I miss it a lot but I just can't justify the risk. Once there's a (viable) vaccine and/or it dies down enough I'll be back at it though.

I hate you all.

The rink in San Francisco has started doing masked, 7-per-side scrimmages. No locker rooms but you can change in the lobby. I'm not that desperate yet.

I strapped on rollerblades for the first time in my life last week and it was brutal. Not like skating at all. Not sure how people do both tbh.

Someone on my rink with a confirmed case. They shut down all leagues......... for one week.

They last played on Sunday (my wife’s night) and Monday (my night). Yeesh.

Last night my team was talking about how different rinks aren’t being careful and how the season would be cancelled any day now. One of them coaches his kids team and was saying it was weird that the rink they played at let them use the locker room, and that he even had to kick a kid out of the locker room for not wearing their mask.




Then some other dude said we only had two more weeks of wearing masks while playing until the hoax was ended with the election. I think I need to play further away from New Hampshire.

there's a guy i like playing with despite his terrible facebook politics, but we sure as hell didn't invite him out this year since he's been posting plandemic nonsense.

they opened up the dressing rooms at our rink but pretty much only the goalies use them in my group.

We are not certain that playing hockey with or against a player who has COVID-19 is considered “close contact”, but to be safe, we are shutting down all adult games for a minimum of one week.

It's a no check league you see. Can't have close contact if you can't check.

Third time is a charm right?


Would screaming "COVID" as you shoot the puck increase the odds of it going in the net?
