Gary Bettman, commissioner of the National Hockey League, must be good buddies with Adam Silver because soon after pro basketball’s head cheese caved to COVID fear and suspended the NBA season the NHL quickly followed suit. This is despite the fact that their players have no skin to skin contact, assuming they can stop throwing off their gloves to fight. Perhaps it’s time to better enforce the rules on the latter? But alas, it is what it is, and so for now we have no NHL hockey to watch or bet on thanks to an ironically named Bettman.
Or do we?

NHL Season Prop: Will the remaining 2019-20 NHL season be suspended for more than 30 days (from March 13 2020)?
It’s important to note that Gary Bettman has been more vocal than his NBA counterpart about the desire to return to play the remainder of the season in some shape or form:
“Our goal is to resume play as soon as it is appropriate and prudent so that we will be able to complete the season and award the Stanley Cup.” (Gary Bettman)
