Yesterday, Cam Neely held another Zoom conference call with season ticket holders. It was an opportunity for the Bruins president to disperse some information about what is happening and what will happen.
He told those viewing that players seem willing to play through the summer should play resume and that the following season will have to be pushed back should that happen. He expressed interest in playing games in Germany and Prague the following season.
Will games be played without fans or partially filled arenas? Neely says he’s heard a lot of talk but no decision has been made yet. Neely confirmed that STH will be the first to come back when fans are allowed back in the building.
As for the plans for players, there seems to be a structure in place to get players back in shape and back into game play, starting with finishing up the regular season.
- 3 or so days to get players on the ice
- 3 weeks for a training camp
- 3 weeks to play the remaining regular season games
Since the disruption of the season will affect the salary cap for the following season, Cam Neely suggests that the cap may remain flat for a season or two.
He answered many questions, including some about his playing days ad favorite comedians. You can watch the whole thing below:
See you on Zoom Saturday night!
