Pretty sure that's the case, not sure where the threshold lands.

Caps have the full 29 listed, so they should have 25 guys still available.

That truly sucks for them. I hope it doesn’t make its way to decimate the Sabres. Yikes.

Ya, I don't really want to see any team on the Sabres docket have Covid issues.

What exactly are they not allowed to do?

The players can not spend time together outside of the facilities?

I guess I didn’t realize that.

On the road it's very strict. This was a good rundown if you get the Atheeltic:

The NHL also has individual sections covering what is required for air travel, buses and hotels with great detail. The section on airplanes lists how players will sit in assigned seats, that they shall remain seated for the whole flight unless it is to use the bathroom, and to avoid eating and drinking at the same time as others in the same row. The section for buses details how teams will have at least two buses with each bus filled at no more than 50 percent capacity, with no eating or drinking on the bus.

Perhaps the most detailed guidelines were reserved for the team hotel. It is more than four-pages long, covering everything from housekeeping, equipment and luggage, to food and beverage service and elevator usage. For example, the elevator guidelines state that teams have a designated elevator that may be subject to capacity limits and have floor markers. And, the use of stairs is preferred to avoid close contact. The NHL also suggests using knuckles or elbows and not fingers to press elevator buttons; not entering crowded elevators; not lingering or standing around in a crowded elevator bank; and not talking to others while in the elevator.

I could see this being quite wearing.

Looks like they are relaxing the restrictions and 2 people will be able to vist now. Better half hasn't seen her 2 kids in over 3 months now. I hope the restrictions are relaxed a wee bit.

They will miss the Sabres Games 

Please let Ullmark or at least Hutton be available for these games.  This place will be unbearable if Johansson takes an L either night against the remaining roster.

And whomever (if anyone) had Ovechkin at 0 goals through 4 Caps - Sabres games, do you also have the winning lottery numbers? 😉
