Well, it’s officially unofficial: Vegas will be a hub city for the NHL postseason reopening. Does this seem frightening? Yup. Vegas apparently had a spike in cases in April and the the curve pretty much flattened because all the sin was taken out of Sin City. However, cases have been rising again. So, yeah, sounds like a great place to be.
Luckily, the arena is nearly new and presumably easy to sanitize. There are tons of hotels in the area. Teams can literally stay right next to the arena if needed. They won’t, because let’s face it, many of those are cheesy.
The NHL have been hoping that a Canadian city will also make the cut. Reportedly, Toronto is in the mix along with both Calgary and Edmonton. Whether or not one of these cities is selected depends upon the Canadian government’s rules regarding quarantine due to the coronavirus.
