It's no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic is providing a serious roadblock for the NHL and all major sports.
We've heard lots of chatter and even from Gary Bettman himself that there could be an all Canadian division for the 2020-21 season because of the travel restrictions between Canada and the United States.
NHL reporter Kevin Paul Dupont from the Boston Globe blew up social media this morning by raising the possibility of seeing the Canadian division start the 2020-2021 season on January 1 with the Quebec Nordiques.
The Arizona Coyotes have been experiencing significant difficulties in recent years and the sudden creation of a Canadian division would drastically increase the chances of seeing the Nordiques return to Quebec.
The move of the Winnipeg Jets was also rushed a few years ago and everything suggests we could see a similar situation in Quebec.
We bet we'll have more details in the next few days.
NHL considering all-Canadian division to start 20-21 season. Perhaps Jan. 1. Fine idea. Provided it includes expansion to Quebec City.#AllezNords
