  1. I would argue that we are pretty much that bad but the bag is silly since nobody can go to games. Don't need to wear the bag in living room. May help in bed room though.
  2. I think we need to really consider what the word persecution means here. Getting canceled from a TV show is not persecution.
  3. Any of the vets on expiring contracts should be fair game. GaudEtte has given us great value for where he was picked but have seen enough now that am comfortable trading him as part of a deal for a d or 3rd line centre. Jake just needs to find a new home. Best thing for him, best thing for club at this point.
  4. Yeah I think I put Benning out first.
  5. Our D has one player that was on it 2 years ago. The top 8 has 4 new players this year two of which are rookies. We lost the MVP of the last two years and nobody has stepped up yet. It takes a while to bring them together after such big changes and you never really know if it will work.
  6. Nice to see the rookies looking good. Joulevi got tripped by Yamamoto on the first goal. ‘I kept thinking man Gaudette is flying and his skating looks amazing before realizing it was Schmidt. He is so active. Hoglander got ripped off, he should have got assist on Bo’s goal.
  7. Genetic drift and natural selection tends to making viruses more virulent (infective) and less deadly. Just makes sense when your purpose is to reproduce yourself. The UK strain doesn't have appeared to have changed the spike protein in a way that should significantly reduce vaccine efficacy. There are also many more vaccines in development/testing. I believe Canada was participating in 14 different trials. Even if one doesn't work there are a number of candidates that probably would. Rapid uptake of an effective vaccine would be the best way to minimize the chance for furthe
  8. I am not sure how playing in Canada would work anyway. What if you make a trade. Player you acquired would have to quarantine for two weeks before could use. Creates an unfair advantage to the teams playing in areas that are not taking COVID seriously. Though Calgary would probably love it if the only team they could trade with was us. As a player I would be pissed if they said to me we are moving you to an area that is just overwhelmed with COVID instead of in the city you signed to play in.
  9. If someone decides to take the year off because of COVID it extends their contract a year under same terms. That is a worst case scenario for Louie.
  10. That’s a strong reaction to a fairly milquetoast statement.
  11. If Holtby’s mask is a problem then this is a problem. where is the line between honouring the local heritage and cultural appropriation? Do I have to be Spanish or French to paint in a cubist style? If I make tacos for dinner have I done something wrong? I don’t know where the line is anymore.
  12. I prefer letting the kids play but if we don’t sign another vet 3 of the 8 D we would typically carry would be rookies along with everyone on the taxi squad. We also would be playing the hell out of a second year man in Quinn.
  13. They also seem to be saying that because Biden won their votes don’t count and it isn’t fair. Funny way to look at it when your candidate lost the popular vote in both elections.
  14. I think it would be a lot of fun to just run seven game series against each team sequentially.
