The city of Vancouver, the nerve centre of the NHL, is ‘severely threatened’: report


It seems that there are complications surrounding the Vancouver bid for the hub of the city, which would have been a leader until yesterday.Separate reports released today by Chris Johnston and Jeff Marek of Sportsnet indicate that Vancouver might not be chosen by the NHL after all. The league has narrowed its list of candidate cities from 10 to six, Edmonton, Toronto, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Chicago are still in the running.

“Specifically with regard to Vancouver, we hear that there has been a snag in the talks and it seems that this is the end of the rules of quarantine and bubbles … but apparently, the agreement could not be reached yesterday because of it,” said Marek in an interview. with James Cybulski and Perry Solkowski on Sportsnet 650 this morning.

“The momentum has completely stopped,” said Johnston, who also appeared on Sportsnet 650 today, in an interview with Brendan Batchelor and Jamie Dodd. “It seemed that Vancouver was almost certain to become one of the main cities, but now it seems to be seriously threatened. ”

The NHL has a lot to consider for his model of the town pivot, which includes the provision to players of a pleasant environment that is separated from their family for two months.

Vancouver always seems to be the safest option for the NHL, given the low number of cases in British Columbia to date, with Edmonton not far behind. Las Vegas can offer a hotel infrastructure is unparalleled, while Toronto holds the distinction of being the last city of the Conference Is in the running.
