    Not only do NBA/NHL teams share arenas, but concerts, Lacrosse, AHL, and people can rent the arenas for personal use.

    Because it's a "suspension of the league" teams expect players to stay in their city, practice and be available whenever. It's not a lock-out for these players. So players in the NBA get paid still, and the teams get no revenue.

    Quick aside, think about all the players nursing injuries this would give teams time to get healthy and could impact the competitive balance(ebbs and flows). I don't say this as a negative i just find it interesting to ponder.

    Tonight is the first scheduled game behind closed does in Columbus vs. Pittsburgh. It’s a certainty that the league will have to suspend the season so why have games with no fans? May as well make the announcement today and hope that eventually the season can resume with fans in the arenas.

    I think the thought process is the less of the season that gets postponed, the better. I do see what you mean though, that if a full stop is coming, why take half measures in the meantime?

    One creative/interesting thought I had was that the NHL may consider a method to get all teams to 71 or 72gp.
    So they may immediately suspend games for teams at the max mark (currently 71gp... or 72) and allow closed-door games between other teams to get there.
    This at least puts all teams at a fair-GP count.

    Worst-comes-to-worst and the NHL can't get the last 11 or 12 regular season GP in... they head straight to (closed-venue) playoffs, on schedule (Apr7th-on) based on top8.

    That would be unfortunate, but since they already added an extra race this year, not really a huge deal for them in the grand scheme of things. Would suck for Australia though.

    I mentioned this in the other thread...

    Base standings on current winning percentage - no more regular season games played.
    Single knockout tournament with current divisional format.
    Crowds if it’s doable.

    Of course this would never happen but it would make for the most exciting hockey games we’ve seen in awhile.

    Also, the plane the Jazz used was used to fly to OKC was later used by both Orlando and Memphis.

    Another aspect is when this season for the NHL/NBA will end, will effect the start of the 2020-21 season.

    All 30 NBA teams have played against Gobert or against someone who's played Gobert in the last like 5 days since the Jazz have been on the road.

    Phone meeting with all 31 teams at 1pm apparently to discuss what is happening next.

    Mark Cuban said the NBA season isn't cancelled but expected to just be postponed and the season could end as late as August.

    One thing to keep in mind is that the NBA gets a ton of its revenue from TV deals. The NHL gets most of its revenue from tickets sold to games. So the NBA could go to a system where they play in front of empty arenas and it won't affect the bottom line as much as it would the NHL.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Eichel, Marchessault, Pacioretty, Kyle Connor, Couturier, Stone, Tatar, Dadonov, R. Strome, J.T. Miller, E. Staal, Zegras, Heponiemi
    Defence: Hamilton, Suter, Krug, Pionk, Morrissey, Ellis, Ekman-Larsson,
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Rask
