Blues at Ducks preview: Ryan O’Reilly is back

The Blues won’t be getting any Covid cap relief measures any time soon - Bill Daly made that supremely clear in comments to the Post-Dispatch.

“There is not currently an intention to provide cap relief for Covid-related reasons,” Daly said via e-mail. “No different than having to deal with multiple short-term injuries. St. Louis is not at all unique in having to navigate these waters.”

No one’s asking for special help here, Bill. Teams would just like some common sense measures in place because no team has six or seven players injured at the same time like they have had six or seven players on the protocol list, but I guess that’s neither here nor there if the league isn’t doing anything to accommodate.
