Are we getting to a point where a potential NHL Return To Play and the New York Islanders 2020-21 season is in serious jeopardy because of labor issues and the second wave of COVID-19, which is raging around the world?
“Talks are at a standstill. It’s really quiet,” a prominent NHL agent told “Off the Record” on Monday.
While there is still a good deal of hope for an NHL Return, the owners’ latest request to alter the collective bargaining agreement, which was signed just five months ago, left the players fuming and their agents wondering when is enough with the “constant concessions” players have made since the 2004-05 lockout?
In other words, the NHL’s offer may have re-opened old wounds. Some are beginning to ask: Would some NHL owners and even the league be OK with canceling the 2020-21 NHL season?
