  1. Working, learning French, trying not to read the news.
  2. Yeah you could be right, I certainly hope you're right. It's definitely an important question. Will Bernie supporters swallow their pride and vote for Biden, who they feel is the lesser of two evils? Or will they snub Biden, because he doesn't support any of the policies that they've been lobbying for? Only time will tell.
  3. Isn't that one of the things that helped Trump defeat Clinton back in 2016? Some of the Bernie supporters either voted for Trump, or chose not to vote, even though Bernie endorsed Hillary after he lost. I think that something similar could happen this year imo. Remember that Biden recently said publicly that he would veto the Medicare For All bill if it somehow made it to his desk, it's things like that that will not endear him to the progressive voter.
  4. Based on a number of issues, The Democrat voters are essentially split, between the moderate voters and the progressive voters. The progressives aren't too fond of Biden, given his voting record. He voted for the Iraq war and the Patriot act for example, something they're not very happy about. He also opposed the desegregation of buses back in the day, something that Trump will definitely go after him on in the general. The possibility that Biden has dementia, and at times has trouble completing sentences. Trump is already attacking him on this issue, and will very likely to become a factor in the general. And while Trump is far from the smartest person in the room, his mind is still sharp. Also, for the past four years, Trump has not stopped campaigning, he's been constantly shoring up his base. He is a far better politician then he's been given credit for. (certainly better at politics then he has been as a business man) Don't get me wrong, I hate Trump and want to see him lose, but I don't like the odds. But when I look at the scenario of Trump vs Biden, one on one, on national TV, I like Trump's chances.
  5. Yeah it doesn't look good for the Democrats, they tell us it's so important to get rid of Trump yet they're trotting out the weakest candidate they can find in Biden. If they can find someone really solid for VP, then they might have a fighting chance, otherwise Trump will slaughter him.
  6. Green is not the right coach to get them to the next step. Fire Green now and hire a coach with experience.
  7. Players can still try hard and still tune out the coach
  8. It's coaching, I think he's lost the room. Nothing against Green, but all coaches get replaced eventually, and now it's Green's turn to move on.
  9. I'd rather it happen more like 3 days from tonight!
  10. I don't know if he's afraid, but he's definitely not effective anymore. Hopefully JB fires him in the next few days
  11. If Jim wants to save the season he needs to get rid of Green asap. He has done a good job developing our youth, but now his time is up and we need a more experienced coach for us to take the next step.
  12. It's time to fire Green, he's past his expiry date. I'd like to salvage this season, bring in Gallant or another coach that has won the cup before.
  13. And do we even want him on a long term contract? He's already 28, and will probably be asking for $8M per year and up
  14. What I heard was that Marky got an MRI in Montreal that showed that he could be out 3-4 weeks, but that they weren't entirely sure. That's why he's heading back to Vancouver to get checked out in more detail.
  15. JB is saying that it COULD be 3-4 weeks, but not definitely. They'll know more on Wednesday
