Canucks players speak up in the wake of JT Miller's comments and the re-scheduling of tomorrow's game

“Playing a game tomorrow would be out of the question for a lot of us.”


UPDATE: The NHL has now officially postponed the Canucks' return to play. A revised schedule will be made available tomorrow.

In case you missed it yesterday, Vancouver Canucks forward JT Miller did NOT hold back in his criticism of the NHL for forcing his team back onto the schedule after 22 days off and after 25 members of the organization were placed in COVID-19 protocol.

Here's some choice quotes from Miller's media availability yesterday:

In response, the NHLPA held a virtual meeting with Canucks players and staff members last night and it appears now that tomorrow's game against the Edmonton Oilers has been postponed.

Expect other players to come out and offer up their opinions now that Miller has broken the ice for him. Canucks insider Dan Murphy of Sportsnet shared one such opinion earlier today.

The fate of Saturday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs remains in doubt. Stay tuned.
