  1. We are hockey fans, we are not his parents.
  2. Andersson for Stecher's rights. Use Stecher's money to resign Tanev and bring up Juolevi or Rafferty.
  3. The Seattle Chop is going to play in the Climate Change arena.
  4. If the Canucks lose then there is a chance at number 1 pick, and our free agents might be getting less money if they did not do well during the Minny series versus beating Minny, losing our pick to New Jersey and maybe getting to the second round in the playoffs...I love my Canucks but I kinda hope Minny smokes them. Winning the draft tournament is pretty good experience for the young players in my eyes.
  5. Gives the Canucks more incentive to use our rookies rather than sign FA's into stupid contracts like in the past.
  6. Trade Stetcher's rights for a draft pick or a prospect and bring up an entry level contract. That should be enough.
  7. I stopped myself from slapping a dude upside the head when he told me that he was a Leaf's fan.
  8. Tanev looks most expendable at this point. The Canucks suffered during Marky's absence and seems a lot more confident when he is in net. Tiffoli needs to be signed because Boeser on one line and Tiffoli on the other makes the offence that much more potent. Also Boeser has yet to show he can play a full season. With Tanev, I would honestly rather trade Stetcher and try resign Tanev to a one year deal. Saves us an expansion space and gives them time to get some more salary off the books for the year after. Hughes and Tanev just looks made for each other.
  9. No brain but That sure looks like Trump and Pence to me.
  10. I am now convinced that this presidency is an episode of Pinky and the Brain come to life. Trump has just been attacking and attacking. He splits up the country, gets away from allies but pulling out of the environmental and Iran deal, bullies NATO, sactions and tarriffs to this country and to that country, goes all out in a press media tour in blaming China for the spread of Covid even though he knew China was in lockdown 2 months in advance and had all that time to prepare. When do we get back to the part where the Brain makes a mistake and the world goes back to normal?
  11. 12.5 of those hours was spent deflecting blame on himself and throwing others under the bus.
  12. Thanks are going better, i was finally able to pick up my daughter and bring her home so the house is a little busier now. Everyone here is still a little paranoid about going out so the city still looks a bit abandoned. Are you guys still on lockdown?
  13. I had to look through my old medical records.
  14. March 20, 2020 -- A person's blood type may affect their risk for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, researchers report. They analyzed blood samples from nearly 2,200 COVID-19 patients in China and tens of thousands of healthy people, and found those with A blood types had a significantly higher risk of COVID-19 while those with O blood types had a significantly lower risk, Newsweek reported. The findings appear on the website medRxiv, where health researchers publish studies before they undergo the peer review process required by journals. The researchers said blood type-related differences in COVID-19 risk may be due to certain antibodies in the blood, but further studies are needed to confirm this, Newsweek reported. The finding that blood type may affect COVID-19 risk could be important for healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients, because those with A blood types" "might need particularly strengthened personal protection to reduce the chance of infection." Also, people with A blood types might require "more vigilant surveillance and aggressive treatment," and identifying a person's blood type as a routine part of treating COVID-19 and other coronavirus infections might be helpful, according to the researchers, Newsweek reported. The study was limited because of its small size and it didn't offer an explanation for its findings, Gao Yingdai, a researcher from the State Key Laboratory of Experimental Hematology in Tianjin, told the South China Morning Post. The study "may be helpful to medical professionals, but ordinary citizens should not take the statistics too seriously," said Gao,who did not work on the study, Newsweek reported. "If you are type A, there is no need to panic. It does not mean you will be infected 100 percent," she said, addingm "If you are type O, it does not mean you are absolutely safe, either. You still need to wash your hands and follow the guidelines issued by authorities."
  15. Hey everyone, so one issue that I don't think people talk enough about is that even when the quarantine is over, there still might be silent carriers meaning there are many people who can be infected with the virus yet show no symptoms of being sick. People with type O blood are like this because they are the least likely to get sick or show symptoms from what statistics show.
  16. Going back in the summer hopefully if the virus is gone.
  17. Good, the city is open again but people are still careful and moast are still staying home. Looks like it will be a while before things get back to normal. The train station and trains will start leaving Wuhan in a couple of days and we got the train tickets to bring my little girl home. So that is going to be a blessing. Now just praying for family and friends back in BC.
  18. Drink a lot of water to make sure you have fluids in your body.
  19. That's why I said I'll care about this if they don't sign Tiffoli on an earlier post.
  20. Please trust me in this guys, I am still on a lockdown right now. Wear a mask, it will protect you, if you can't get your hands on a mask, makeshift something a scarf, an shirt, anything. I know face masks can be hard to find nowadays sometimes, you gotta make do with what you have. If you are in a jam, a lot of people here used this site to learn how to town a simple household item into a emergency face mask if you can't get your hands on a surgical one. Stay safe everyone.
  21. More importantly, if Tryamkin signs soon, does that mean EA has the rights to put him on NHL 00? I need a big defenceman.
