    Unanimous last place pick in the coaches' poll. Nowhere to go but up!

          What a bummer! Pushing it back is going to make ZERO difference in terms of Covid, or the potential spread of Covid. It's an alarmist reaction to a non-existent "problem." I mean, the team is essentially in a bubble and fans weren't going to be allowed at the games anyway. This decision reeks of political correctness IMO. Wow, leave it to Vermont....

            The Cats should just play away games until President Garimella and the VT Dept of Health deem it safe to compete at The Gut. Have UConn host this weekend!

              Quarter of a million dead is a non-existent problem? Out of control virus spread across the US is a non-existent problem?? Hospitals at full capacity, healthcare workers stretched beyond the limit because of a non-existent problem?? Huh. Who knew?

                No, UVM hockey influencing the spread of covid, one way or the other, is a non-existent problem.

                  I’m as aggressive as anyone when it comes to battling Covid and am very upset at what has happened this year with hundreds of thousands dead but I don’t think Hockey Easy is going to move the needle at all. If anything by them playing it gives people a bit of entertainment which helps. Recreational hockey should absolutely be stopped but no reason to do the same with college or professional hockey. The timing is unbelievably disappointing too.

                    So, BU was scheduled to be up there first weekend in December. Let's say someone at The Gut has tested positive and is there when BU is there. A player or coaching staff gets infected. Gets on the bus to drive home to Boston. The bus driver gets infected, who them infects his wife, etc. You are wrong that it's a non-existent problem. We're not just talking about the players. There is staff involved to make sure the games are played. Their lives aren't as worth it, as long as you get to see some games?

                      Haha, you make a wonderful argument for the cancellation of the entire HE season, as well as all sports both professional and amateur. Actually, why stop there? The same risks that you cite are involved anytime you step out of your home.

                        I think the bus driver is much safer driving a college hockey team getting tested multiple times a week versus a bunch of random people who aren’t getting tested at all.

                          I agree. Maine could be next. The President has yet to approve Maine's schedule.

                            Excellent point. These players are tested every few days and are strictly following protocol. The driver is safer driving the teams than he is doing any normal life activity such as food shopping or walking in a Home Depot.
