I've always been a reader and so were my kids. One of their favorites was the Screech Owl series, authored by the great @RoyMacG . This is the 25th anniversary of the series and other than Anne Of Green Gables, may be the most popular Canadian export ever: https://t.co/OCXwhEBMrC

SOURCE: Cap recapture (Parise/Suter) amended in new NHL - NHLPA CBA There is no longer a charge greater than the contract’s AAV in any year, but charge continues until full overage is paid off. You can read about cap recapture in this #mnwild story https://t.co/JvVnezfyQg

Still needs to be ratified by NHL B of G and NHLPA executive board must approve sending it to full NHLPA membership for a vote.

NHL-NHLPA tentIve agreement on CBA MOU appears to be done.

Taking a break from the summer vacation to check in: the NHL and NHLPA are still at it on the CBA front. Taking time to finalize matters and agree on language.

In 1993, the Maple Leafs went on a playoff run and also let Glenn Anderson bully them into making a music video, and it all resulted in the greatest VHS tape ever made. It's the oral history of The Passion Returns. https://t.co/Y9hgAnfk7d https://t.co/BRQLIReROp

I wrote a long-ish thing about Gold drafting, which makes the end of the season exciting for every team and eliminates tanking as a side-benefit.

People just instinctively quoting "The Leafs Are The Best" lyrics at me because we all still have that song memorized, 27 years later. This movie should have won an Oscar.

Quoted @reporterchris

If a player tests positive for COVID-19 or develops symptoms in either Phase 3 and 4, teams are not permitted to share that information with the media or public absent prior approval from the NHL (in consultation with the NHLPA).

From a medical privacy perspective, this makes sense. But the speculation every time a player misses a game or practice is going to be... interesting. https://t.co/mNBty4NXu7

It’s kind of fun to watch all the insiders speed-read together.

Here are some of the details of what a new NHL/NHLPA CBA and return to play protocol might look like. Two sides are close and a vote is likely in the next couple of days. https://t.co/5O08LF4jzc

Sources: Blues cancel practices due to ‘multiple’ COVID-19 positive tests https://t.co/fstyhGN1CA #stlblues

Is that because of circumstances (we need a deal fast and this isn’t the time to get fancy) or because both sides agree the system is working for them? Sure hope it’s the latter.

Some idea of what new CBA/Return to Play will look like: https://t.co/I2SMyju1tK

Really feels like the biggest news here is how little is changing. There’s some tinkering, but nothing approaching what you’d call a big idea. https://t.co/QKEIZ1sm2D

In a way, the NHL/NBA scenario may be even tougher. MLB could have to shut a team down for a few weeks, creating an unbalanced schedule. But what do you do in the playoffs? At some point, would a team have to forfeit?
