I bet the remainder of the regular season is not played. Then a shortened playoffs starting in a month. Maybe a couple 3 game rounds instead of 7.

This pandemic is most likely going to wipe out the CHL season. According to Dr. Andrew Morris, infections disease expert at Mount Sinai hospital, it is unrealistic to think these leagues can be restarted in just a few weeks.

Let?s hope there is no retroactive unwinding of trade deadline deals


What scenario would feel worse as a fan:

Your team sells the farm to go for it and then have the playoffs cancelled ...

Or

Being eliminated in the second round to the team you sold the farm to lol

The seriousness of the Covid-19 outbreak, the unknown time frame required for containment and the extreme measures required to fight the spreading of this virus, it's highly probable that final CHL game has been played.

If in fact that is the case, it is an unfortunate circumstance for the teams that were all in this year, the players in their draft year (NHL and OHL) and the Mem-Cup host (Kelowna). A Mem-Cup decision would have to be made – no Mem-Cup host has been announced for 2021 - so perhaps Kelowna is award the 2021 and the OHL Mem-Cup year is pushed to 2022.

Not what any CHL fan wanted but with the health and safety of the general public (especially seniors), fans and players being the most important factor, sports made the right decision March 12.

Kelowna is loaded with 19 yr old players and they're bad now. Imagine next year when they are loaded with 16 yr and 17 yr old rookies. They'll either have to withdraw from the tourney or we'll see some of the most lopsided Memorial Cup scores ever. It would be like Niagara hosting the Cup this year. #UGLY

Interesting idea. When you consider the significant economic impact hosting a Mem-Cup has on a community like Kelowna (or say St. Catharines), some difficult decisions that are going to effect a lot of hockey and non-hockey people will have to be made by the CHL.

Hundreds if not thousands of hours have been put in by the Mem-Cup organization committee - so being offered the opportunity to be a neutral site host might be something the CHL proposes to Kelowna.

For ALL concerned, we can only hope the best case COVID-19 scenario unfolds and some version of a playoff and Mem-Cup is played.
