Edmonton’s Pitch To Be A 2020 Playoff Host City Rules

 

Reported earlier by TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Edmonton Oilers ownership group is coming up with a pretty awesome presentation to be one of the host sites to finish the 2019-2020 NHL season. From all the pitches I’ve been able to gather from people around the league, I believe this one, in particular, will pique the NHLPA’s interest.

According to a source in Edmonton the pitch the Oilers brass is “super player-friendly” and they believe its the first presentation of its kind.  A private golf course and not having to burn up in the Arizona heat in the dead of summer makes it a pretty compelling idea, to begin with.  But then when you add an outdoor drive-in type movie theatre and other team building game facilities, it’s shaping up to be one of the most intriguing offers put forward to date.

More details to come.
