How To Best Set Up An NHL Bubble

Zachary Binney, PhD is an epidemiologist and Assistant Professor of Quantitative Theory and Methods at Oxford College of Emory University. He joins Jeff and Elliotte to discuss what the NHL should look for when setting up bubbles, areas of concern, saliva test versus swab tests, when fans will return to sporting events and if leagues should change rules for safety measures. 

Andy Sutton played 13 NHL seasons and is now the president of Wholesale Sports Inc., the parent company of inline hockey brand Alkali, Verbero Hockey and the North American distributor of Tackla. He lives on three acres of land in California with vegetable beds and an array of animals, including alpacas, goats and others. He talks about transitioning out of hockey, equipment improvements, why Minnesota tried to turn him into a forward, memorable experiences with coaches and his famous “Are you an expert?” post-game scrum.
