Behind the scenes look at professional sports

What the NHL should be doing is having press conference setups for player availability, like in the playoffs. Given the number of people who have closer than breathing space access, it puts a lot of people at risk to bring it home to their families and then have their kids to take it to the schools. Players drink out of communal water bottles, share sweat on the exercise equipment, and having dressing room access for media means their sweat can drip onto someone in a scrum, from a hanging skate, and God knows what else.
Given that the NHL has no policy or plans to implement one, this fact is much scarier than the flu.
