Will Canadian/US Border Opening Kill Summer Hockey?

How do sports leagues with teams in Canada contemplate a return to play?
With 8 US states still refusing to impose stay at home legislation, one NHL player agent tells me he's advised clients to expect the US-Canada border to remain closed until well after Canadian Thanksgiving.

It has to be a concern, but I have also heard the pro leagues, whose heads met with Trump yesterday don't see this as a problem, and Trump very much let it be known he wants pro sports to be among the first things to return...even if they play in front of empty stadiums at first...

This post is not intended to be political in any way. There ARE NO political parties at a time like this. That ridiculousness has been put into perspective for a LONG time... you may state your opinions but please don't make this into a political slugfest about who dropped the ball in the past, and who is doing what now....We should all agree that MANY more than one person dropped the ball and that goes back years... The only hope we can have here is that from this point forward we take what scientist and experts say a WHOLE lot more seriously..

Thoughts on the NHL teams perhaps being allowed to cross the borders before the general public?
