The NHL wanted to hit the ice with sharp skates and tight laces ready to go with an attempt to virtue signal by making February Hockey Is For Everyone month.
NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman had this to say:
“Our Clubs, our players and our fans are committed to welcoming everyone to hockey. While the NHL family strives for diversity and inclusiveness all year-long, February is Hockey Is For Everyone month, which will highlight, on a daily basis, the many ways our sport brings greater attention, heightened awareness and broader opportunities.”
One hitch in the plan….
February apparently already belongs to a group of people, Blacks.

C'mon, @NHL. You can't really be that tone deaf! I think the universal sentiment re: #HockeyIsForEveryone is that it's a worthy initiative… BUT how in the world did you not think to put it in a month that's not dedicated to #BlackHistoryMonthِ? #BlackHockeyPlayers #dissapointed

@NHL I'm glad we're celebrating diversity in all forms BUT couldn't you have chosen a different month than February? It's literally the ONE MONTH out of the year dedicated to BLACK history. Why not celebrate the number of AA players instead? https://t.co/zcoO4NuriV

It looks like the NHL is pinning two different groups against one another since this diversity month has more to do with homosexuality than race. Apparently being able to handle different types of sticks is a plus when you are on the ice.

Who will be in the penalty box after this fight for victim hood , Gays or Blacks? What about the homosexual blacks? Where do they fit in?
I happen to love the NHL, and just like other sports that have used their platform to push an agenda of diversity, I believe this will lead to many unhappy hockey fans. Actually, it already has.
Sorry. No games for me this month. I choose not to have to explain the public actions of the group you're celebrating to my two young kids.

Please drop the forced diversity propaganda bullshit and just play hockey like you’re paid to do! That’s all we want to see! If I wanted to spend time celebrating that I’d go to travel to another country & celebrate

Maybe the NHL should’ve just left well enough alone? However, the need to placate a very small sample of their audience has overridden any sense. When the SJW virus spreads it’ll take more than a team doctor to cure it.
