Let’s go over some news and notes:
- The Wild are the first pro team in Minnesota to announce that it will be furloughing some staff members and reducing hours for others. Not great, Bob! [Star Tribune]
- Say what you will about Chuck Fletcher, but he made (arguably) the NHL’s best free agency addition of the decade. [The Athletic]
Off the trail...
- It sounds like the renovation of Seattle’s new arena won’t be completed as early as many expected. The opening may be delayed until late August or early September of 2021. [Sportsnet]
- Speaking of which, the unveiling of Seattle’s team name and logo is being delayed yet again. [NBC Sports]
