Very interesting read about life of the NHL players inside the bubble .......

 

Well worth the read......

 

Wow!  Didn't think it looked like much fun but to read that it wasn't....

 

I can't imagine that they could do that for a full season.  

 

Thanks for the share!

I'm very curious to know the identity of the players they interviewed?

I appreciate the candor of the players. It would be easy to tow the company line and say this was awesome etcetera.

 

I don't think the lack of amenities was the result of malice of forethought on the the part of the league...I do think what's planned and then what actually happens changes all the time. I've noticed this in my work life during the pandemic.  We have all these plans for how to work safely and what winds up happening many times is, people don't show up, people aren't able to do what they're supposed to, the added distancing protocols makes everything slower, the most simple tasks are more time consuming.  I'm sure food truck vendors were looking at 35 days adhering to stringent COVID protocols weren't confident they could turn a profit even with a captive customer base.

 

I have some empathy for these guys and appreciate their efforts.

I'm glad the league returned to play. It has been a nice diversion from the daily right crosses the pandemic and current events deliver.

Me too!  At one point something was said and I immediately thought Hayes. Pure guess but it would be very interesting.

thank you for sharing this. It is always interesting for me to read these kinds of perspective insights. I noticed that the experience still varies even to players of the same sport.
