As we approach the end of the regular season, the COVID pandemic has again become an issue within the CEHL community. Multiple game delays have started to occur and some GMs are demanding answers.
Shawn Lawrence of the New Jersey Devils has been very vocal in his opposition to game cancellations. Shawn firmly believes in his own playoff chances and feels that Commissioner Semelman is improperly stalling to avoid the end of the regular season. Is it because Semelman knows his team has a very poor vaccination rate that could negatively affect his chances of advancing to the Smitty Cup? Well, if we had actually spent time interviewing the Commissioner, this issue may have become a bit more clear.
Unfortunately, in addition to his responsibilities as the CEHL Commissioner and GM of the Washington Capitals, Mr. Semelman is also employed as a computer programmer. He has been pulling double duty fixing online exploits, due to the Log4j vulnerability. This has led to calls for Semelman to give up his programming job and focus solely on making the CEHL great, once again. With all of these delays and pandemic-related fear starting to set in, some wonder if we will see a team hoist the Smitty Cup in 2022. But as Brad Smith once said, it’s not how many eggs will you make for me, it’s how many eggs do you have? And are they all in one basket?
