Report: Cross Border Trades Allowed Next Season

The NHL will reportedly continue to allow trades between Canadian teams and the rest of the teams south of the border.

While it's certainly not ideal regardless of any way you draw it up, the NHL will do its best to try and keep things as 'normal' as possible. This is a small piece and good to see. The Canadian teams will see enough of each other, it would be tough to see a set up like that.

The league is trying hard to stay ahead of a potential outbreak and is looking into privately purchasing enough vaccines to cover everyone involved with the 2020-21 season. 

There were some concerns trades wouldn't be allowed at all, but that seems to have subsided. From all accounts it sounds like it's all systems go for December 31st, the league will adjust on the fly.

The playoff bubble was way better than anyone expected, it feels like more of the same is coming from the NHL. The fluid situation will be interesting to watch, but two things we know - the best hockey players in the world will be playing, and all trades are open season.
