“I would really like to experience this” – Roussel

The National Hockey League is considering establishing an all-Canadian section when activities resume in 2021.

Does this idea appeal to the players involved? One thing is certain, this scenario is extremely exciting for Vancouver Canucks forward Antoine Roussel.

“I would really like to experience that”, he launched on the TVA Sports program. JIC, mardi.

“We play in a division that is considered easier. Playing in a Canadian division could be really interesting. In addition, we would play more often in Montreal! It would be a really tough division. It would be exciting for fans and for us, ”added Roussel. See this interview in the video above.

A blow to the Canucks

During the interview, it was also about the health problems of Gino Odjick, a former player still very appreciated in Vancouver.

Odjick recently had to resume chemotherapy treatments. The former badass said his heart was again attacked by amyloidosis, a rare disease he first fought six years ago.

“It’s a big blow for the fans and the players of the Canucks,” said Roussel. It’s hard to see a former player like him, who gave himself body and soul for the team, suffer like that. ”

Roussel often crosses paths with Odjick, without however knowing him personally.

“Gino has an important place with the Canucks. We see him regularly in the pre-matches and he always receives standing ovations. People love him so much. It’s amazing the love they give him. And it’s reciprocal. ”

From 4 to 6 bubbles?

Remember that the NHL is currently exploring the possibility of implanting four to six bubbles for the next season.

Thus, a bubble would be implanted in Canada and an all-Canadian division would be created because of the restrictions related to cross-border travel, that is to say the respect of a quarantine of several days upon entering the country.

In this model, players would be part of rotations that would allow them to spend two weeks inside the bubble and then a week at home with their families. The teams would play around 12 games per month.

The season will likely have to be cut by several games so that it ends before the presentation of the Tokyo Olympics, starting July 22.

NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is keen on a return to January 1.
