  1. According to him the resounding answer is, "Yes"
  2. A complete misread by Gillis though. Got a player that the coach didn't really use in the fashion intended.
  3. Hopefully. This guy bores me. Trade his rights for anything.
  4. I wouldn't be surprised if he starts slow but I can see 60 for sure.
  5. @gurn i read the Finland players came in on a chartered flight. I could imagine extreme precautions taking place that we don't know of for all of these people. Perhaps even an RCMP chaperone?
  6. If you read the Panthers play in bio and most notably Barkov's comments he says they're all dialed in. Even as far as social distancing goes. Sorry I tried to find it but it was buried in somewhere. Basically he said it was hard but they all are 100% committed to safety, which is needed for society, and to win. He said it will be hard not socializing with the team in between but they have to do what it takes to win. He's the Captain. For myself, if a couple goofballs associate and then spread it, it means there are a bunch of goofballs on the team, and you were seriously not capable of assimilating an assault for the Stanley Cup. with my unpracticed medical degree I would anticipate stupid behavior will get nipped in the bud ... or kill the whole playoff. I'd be willing to bet though that Bettman and his people will have this down to a science and it will be a spectacle for the whole world. The thing people have to realize is that this isn't the real world. Players will be tested every game and not hide any sickness. Chances of spreading are small to none in my humble opinion. And if they do just quarantine the hotel like a zombie apocalypse. Us humans have a great game plan for that right?
  7. @gurnlol, very carefully if you've heard the joke. still nothing compared to the numbers we've had. 1200 people as an exception will do nothing, even if they all had Covid it would barely matter, at one point Montreal was spewing out 400 a day. It's all numbers, especially when they get under the bubble. fear of an outbreak is unwarranted and close to nil look at me, no punctuation, barely The thing people might not be factoring is these aren't college kids. They're flying in with a mask, and going straight to the hub for testing. You know you could even isolate for 3 days as you enter the hub. I think it's definitely 98% possible.
  8. It's not but that's obviously the plan and what we're going with as human beings. As well, they'll obviously include a wait period? lol, or no? Also, can a test be done in less than 3 days. If so, the NHL can do it.
  9. Yeah I'm a 100% on the bubble. Not sure where you're getting the info that people will be jet-setting in and terrorizing the town though. I also heard these meals are catered. Am I amiss?
  10. For me that's the only way it's feasible to human beings. 1. Live according to the law as you see it until testing. 2. Be tested, If pass go to camp 3. Play, or if fail be quarantined 14 days. 4. Once passing test rely on the bubble, as well as practicing moderate social distancing. End of story. It's all about testing at this point, and then adherence to the bubble. We're way beyond social distancing being a be all end all. Lots of these guys will be spitting and bleeding on each other in short time.
  11. You're worried about 1200 people in a nation of 35 million people, whom are taking more care than those said people? What am I missing in your stance?
  12. Is he dead yet? lol Great hockey player. Mostly a goal scorer. i think Petterson is close in value.
  13. I don't know anything but my first worry is some lazy fringe staff member doesn't care about hockey and slips out for some drinks with friends and ruins it for everyone. Conceivably though the whole cleaning staff could be showered/washed, and then proceed to do cleanup with a mask, even if they brought in some fresh Covid. In that case they may be able to keep people clean even with Covid. I would have a staff Supervisor watching every move (never remove mask or touch face), and possibly have self contained breathing units for the tertiary people in the bubble. Are there actually going to be cleaning staff quarantined in the bubble? Some people are so rich or too young to care about the logistics, or the care and dedication some people have to picking up their $&!#. You have to remember there are no crowds so no seat, food service, food spill, walkway, or food area clean up. We're strictly talking about Ice, Benches, Change Rooms, Physio Rooms, and Media Areas. These would be your most trusted high level career employees, not some 17 kid serving you a corn-dog for $17.50. I wonder what kind of staff that would take? 3 games a day = 6 change rooms, breakfast/meeting places, practice. I wouldn't put more than 2 in a room (probably one), 2 in a meeting place, and so on. I'd probably staff 12 people per day or less to be safe. Then there is the Zamboni, and ice crew, janitorial, so another 4-10. If I had that contract I would be pumped to provide the best service ever. My people would be impeccable. I don't own a cleaning company so someone else might tell me I'm out to lunch, which is OK. I just wonder what it would take to run a skeleton crew in a complex such as this. I've trained in big stadiums before where 5 or less people were running it on an off day.
  14. Well yeah, Spezza and half the other NHL'ers going for dinner the other night puts him in the same boat, along with the rest of the world. Hold everyone to the same measure. Matthew 7:5 The World English Bible translates the passage as: You hypocrite! First, remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye.
  15. I would criticize myself for going to the restaurant in the first place.
  16. As far as I've heard hockey players across the board are going out in public and basing their decisions on the regional protocols and rules around them. Jake is no different. Only A$$holes bring it up just to ... well ... be a$$holes. For me, once he gets tested he can either play or not play depending on whether or not he tests positive. It's his own decision and as a 23 yr old he's only hurting himself if it turns out he can't play NHL hockey because he chose to go see pretty girls and have a beer. it's his decision not anyone else's. If that's how he sees it and that's the decision he made I don't see how anyone can appoint themselves a care giver and authority figure/Covid expert. I'm not young anymore but I can realistically understand his point. Going out and living your life vs the small chance you will contract Covid, factor in the invincible self belief and you either get a tiny bug you can kill off as a high profile athlete, or sit in your apartment watching others have fun when you're faced with possibly 2 months in a tight bubble. I would most likely do the same calculation and proceed similarly. See you at Celebrities. Horrible name for a bar by the way.
  17. People suck. Who are the dirt-bags that bring this stuff up? I guess everyone at the bar was there illegally or something? What a brutal, tiresome, world we live in.
  18. It might be fine, kind of like Saskatoon, but I don't see any players breaking the bubble as you suggest. You would have to be a complete idiot to end up on the front page of the Edmonton Journal breaking the the rules. Even if it's safe as a player you just can't do it. That would be Leipsic level stupid. (I know not quite the same just sounded good)
  19. Despite a few ramblings I personally don't consider any stadium unsafe for the return to play if the right safeguards are taken. How many people in the area have the virus doesn't really matter as much as more important things like if it's done in complete isolation with constant testing. I have a bit of faith in the business world that they can certainly provide the aspects necessary to complete the task, along with strict security, intense testing, and a collaborative effort. It would be an honor to partake in such an endeavor and I would expect everyone from the players, trainers, owners, media, and cleaning staff (hopefully secluded and thoroughly vetted) to be better than they ever have in regards to the rules.
  20. As a rugby player, a tactician, and a humanitarian I would say keep your dis Be-Leafs at home in TO. You clearly couldn't evade a fluttering stamp
