Sunday notes: If NHL bubble hockey schedule returns, Colorado Avalanche is potential host team
Everybody around the game of hockey hopes we can have fans in the stands again soon. There’s just no way the NHL and other hockey leagues can go too much longer without paying customers. Not just for tickets, but paying to park, paying those very reasonable arena concession prices and those even more modestly priced jerseys at the arena team store. But the NHL is already trying to game-plan for the next season, and unless there soon is a miracle cure for the virus to the point where we can all congregate in big numbers, the reality is we’ll probably have to start such a season without fans. (By the way, filling a portion of the arena with fans like they do in football or baseball won’t be as realistic, because of the games being indoors where transmission is saId to be easier). I’m hearing the Colorado Avalanche is a potential host team for games at the Pepsi Center, should that be the case.
