No, next season will have a delayed start (Early Nov) and a late finish, barring everything goes as planned.

Based on the problem's showing up with covid infections. It's time the NHL hung up the 2019-2020 season. Better to have the next season,2020-2021, start on time. Too many player's seem to be testing positive.

They are young and can survive. Those around them need to be protected.

There won't be any resolution to coronavirus until there is an immunity. Whether it be a vaccine, etc. So, life will not change until such exists. There will only continue to be cases because it is very, very difficult to completely isolate everyone from everything.

Personally, I don't think there will be any sports like baseball, basketball, hockey, and football for at least the rest of 2020.

Update;

Vegas still a leading candidate for a Hub city. The Canadian government has given the league permission for players and staff to cross border without quarantine requirements, which makes one of the Canadian cities as a favorite also. Add to that the spike of new cases in much of the US, it is now possible both Hub cities could be in Canada.

Yes, they are talking about Toronto to be a hub city also.

Hub Cities narrowed down to 6. LA, Vegas, Chicago, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver.
Vancouver currently making a big pitch by offering "things to do for player/staff family members". Even though they will not be permitted close contact with family members they could still see them from a distance, if they desire to bring family with them.

Two Hub Cities. A bubble of over 700 each. Players, coaches, staff and other etc.

Vancouver recently illuminated, now down to 5, with Vegas and Toronto now the favorites. Should know by weeks end.
