Starting Date

Post by BeenThereDoneThat » Wed Aug 12, 2020 7:48 pm

Now that the CHL has announced a plan starting date for Major Jr.A, when will the GOJHL announce their planned starting date. I know the situation could change plans daily but it would be nice to know what they are planning.

If the GOJHL remain reluctant on announcing plans, maybe its time for the teams to start speaking out as to what they would like to see as a Return To Play Date

Gate driven league unfortunately so cant see it starting anytime before December just like most other leagues announcing. Plus Border closure does not help with an American team/players in the league. Sounds like its getting extended another month for sure.

Looking at all the Articles about the Hockey Season, does anyone else feel like it's not going to happen? The Numbers don't seem to be going down. I'm honestly hoping for a Season it would be a very disappointing way to end your Overage year like last Season. Thoughts anyone?

In my honest opinion. I feel the numbers being reported are inflated and do not show the real picture, especially with the government adding numbers from past months into current daily totals. The biggest stat I feel we need to look at are the hospitalizations, deaths and recoveries. Most of the new cases are under forty and historically should be the healthiest. No increases in under twenty. Also tightening the symptom list is huge. Lets be honest a runny nose doesn't equal covid. A sneeze doesn't equal covid. I feel there will be a season but at what capacity is uncertain at this point. If Health canada approves the rapid tests that Ford is requesting (results in 15min), that will be a game changer. Hockey teams could have these done pror to any games, but at who's expense. Also, we need to look at how the BCHL and all other leagues that are currently playing games. I watched a intersquad game in BC on Hockey TV and they had full 5on5 and moderate hitting in the game. How are the games being played in the CCHL? ALso, I noticed that Pelham and Ft. Erie had an exh game this past weekend. How did that go? And for fans.....If masking is mandatory and with physical distancing in place...I feel that they should be let in.
