Don’t have access to the story, but is this being considered without fans?  Unless we were a month removed from new Coronavirus cases, I would think it wouldn’t be prudent for people to come here when we haven’t been hit that much so far.  Would think Schlossman would be making an argument that the NHL doesn’t care about anything but the bottom line and keeping their season alive.  If people are still questioning football in the fall, would think this wouldn’t seem realistic.

It would be without fans.

Is that graph in hundreds or thousands or what?

The graph represents interest in the search term for that period. A 100 is the maximum amount of interest during that time while zero means no searches. Because there are a lot of uneven points during the search, you can assume there is a higher statistical range than normal. 

Most graphs will never hit zero as there is at least some traffic. In this case, there is generally no interest in REA but since the article was published, it jumped. 

The graph is created by Google Trends. I just grabbed a screenshot.

Saskatoon is also a prime spot but GF still mentioned.  The playoffs this summer and a later start next fall.  The NHL has met with Trump 

If they did pick Grand Forks they have other rinks close by; Thief River, Bemidji, Fargo.

It sure would be nice for the Grand Forks economy if this ever happened. I would envision a designated hotel per team with a designated restaurant catering meals. Would be great for those businesses.

The NHL should reserve several hotels for them.  One corona case could cease the entire tournament.  All maids, food prep, and other workers would need to be checked for extra pay

This is not an attack on SV, but it's this zero tolerance mentality that's dragging everything - and everyone - down.  It's simply not realistic.  People have got to get comfortable with the notion of being around COVID-19 infected individuals.  That's life.  It's always been that way.  Viruses and cockroaches will outlive us all.

A sports event that results in one case would be dead almost the same day as it is not necessary except for people s enjoyment.

Enjoyment of life is about as essential as it gets, no?  Life is too short already.  Putting things on hold until some arbitrary, imaginary level of 'security' is reached is madness.
