Our COVID Reality

The NHL is reacting quickly to its COVID-19 outbreak. Jeff and Elliotte discuss (00:00) how the virus is impacting teams, protocols being implemented to prevent further spread and what the league might do with so many games to make up. They also check in on Pittsburgh’s GM search (20:00) and talk about Tony DeAngelo’s time in New York (24:20), the Rangers hosting a PWHPA game (26:00), the NWHL suspending its season (28:00), Paul Maurice defending his captain (30:45), the struggling Canucks (37:50) and much more.

Then they chat with Neil Glasberg (41:30), President & CEO of PBI Sports, about his career representing coaches, how he builds business cases for clients, why there aren’t many European coaches in the NHL, his most difficult negotiation and what it was like being Evander Holyfield’s agent.
