While we’re all hoping hockey continues to press forward (safely), Wednesday brought about some news reminding us of what’s going on in the world.
Edmonton’s Misericordia Hospital is effectively shutting its doors to the public to battle a “full facility” COVID-19 outbreak that has now left three patients dead and another 20 patients and 15 staff infected.#yeg #COVID19Abhttps://t.co/t0f4kaFHDF— Edmonton Journal (@edmontonjournal) July 8, 2020
Yes, that same Edmonton that’s slated to host hockey in a few weeks.
While the outbreak above appears to be limited to a single facility, it’s certainly a reminder that the virus hasn’t taken a backseat.
Hopefully things remain relatively under control north of the border, because chaos still reigns down here.
While Bruin Blake Wheeler wasn’t as complete a player as Winnipeg Blake Wheeler, he sure did show flashes of the complete game to come.
Today’s discussion topic
The salary cap will remain flat for next season. Do you think the Bruins will re-sign Torey Krug, or he will take bigger bucks and go elsewhere?
