    Your subjects aren’t listening. Might have to switch your name to kingofcovidiots. :P

    Goof stats, I'm desperate for attention.

     

     

    I said look at me. Gawdamit.

     

     

     

     

    :P

    It is minor criticism and Ray spun it positively, stating what he'd see if Virtanen had an elite-compete level. As I mentioned it related back to the elite-compete level that derived from talking about Hoglander. And I mentioned this happens a lot in prospect forums. Don't get your panties in a knot.

     

    You need to learn how to differentiate between actual bashing of a player and constructive criticism. I went through both of their posts to detail which proves how flawed your sense of logic is here. If you can't see that than you're being unreasonable.

     

    Stating someone is bashing when the evidence proves your overreaction.  You're better than that.

    It's not even close to a fact that Hoglander has some ultra NHL compete level that completely blows Virtanen out of the water. I will wait to see if he even makes the NHL before throwing our current players under the bus.

    That's a pretty big "if", and let's be real, no one has time for pleasantries when we're talking about life and death.  Something as infinitesimally insignificant as paid childcare should not even come close to being a priority in comparison.  
    Hope that, even if an outbreak happens in school, that she wouldn't still be blind enough to persist in having them open, because she's getting to that level of blindness (e.g. when it comes closed spaces where people don't where masks, I wonder which one is the biggest one that's still operating??  :rolleyes:).  

    That's the governments job though. I couldn't do it but they don't act on emotion or right, they think of the overall ability to keep the engine going.

     

    If there are school outbreaks everything will shut down then. Does Dr. Bonnie even make that decision.

    On the plus side, first time in a week the numbers went down. Now if we can get them down below triple digits, or better. 

    Absolutely. I wouldn't mind a shutdown myself. As long as it's mandatory adults aren't threatened with losing their place to others (as much), and children aren't losing ground on others academically in a scholastic sense (to an extent).

    Yeah I'm not buying her BS anymore, esp. with the bolded portions.  As a "doctor", she should know better than to quote from a small sample size of a few studies as evidence, esp. when the final result is inconclusive (and thus she shouldn't be able to say that there's typically minimal spreading as she doesn't know -- "do not appear" and "typically" should not be included in scientific research results). 

    Second, even if teachers are the primary spreaders like Horgan is insinuating, is the fact that they face 30+ students a day not a potential powder keg waiting to blow?  Even if one child becomes a secondary spreader, a spreader is still a spreader, esp. given how she's not enforcing masks in school (which is also contradictory to other HealthBC materials (e.g. advocating distance + hand washing + masks as multi-layer defense)).  

    I hope she and these outside forces lose sleep at night and have to see a child in their life have to go through it themselves, so that they'd see the severity of the illness and they'd have the appalled Benning meme look.  Then maybe they'll come to her senses and do the right thing because sometimes it takes personal experience for folk with motives to wake up and realize what's truly important.      

    It basically comes down to tax paid childcare. Once you take that away it's an economic nightmare. Dr Bonnie is just doing her job and relaying the plan with a positive spin as possible. They are trying to avoid it all costs but unfortunately it appears that a shutdown may be required country wide pretty soon if things don't turn around.



  6. Bitching about bitching. Did I come to the right thread?

     

    Someone has ruined this thread and it's not me.

     

    Then I thought the thread was about Covid and not a about a bunch of personal $&!# that didn't apply here. What a waste of time. I used to rely on good thinking minds here. Now it's just a personal angst thread for those seeking attention.

    Deja vu all over again. Pods is not getting much ice time, goes off to play in a tournament, does great, comes back to KHL, coach is impressed with his tournament play and gives him better ice time and he blossoms. Didn't we just do this last year?

    But yet we have a handful of posters who know little about hockey and next to nothing about the day to day in Russia yammering on about his deployment as if they even understand a shred of what's going on. :frantic: Funny stuff.

    Any time we collectively come together as a group, someone finds something about us to weaken our position. If we're mostly white, they'll call us supremacists, if we're mostly farmers, they'll call us hicks, suburbanites nimby's, etc etc. Corporations own the media and will use it against us to undermine our position. I think back to the transit strike of 2001 which my Dad was a part of, what they were asking for was peanuts and the media turned against them and they eventually gave in because people were too inconvenienced to sympathize with their fellow blue collar workers which was fueled completely by the media, no one ever asked the drivers how they felt. 

    I agree. Big business/politics is the biggest problem humans face and there is no solution in the near future. 

     

    We are nothing in comparison.

    I don’t mind the idea of “spreading the wealth” so to speak in order to create more depth, but I’m not sure if we’re there yet as a team.  We aren’t elite yet and so any attempts to “manufacture depth” would likely just end up being a wet fart.

     

    Ferland-Pettersson-Virtanen

    Pearson-Horvat-Eriksson

    Miller-Gaudette-Boeser

    Roussel-Beagle-Motte

     

    Is the closest that I can think of in terms of attempting to create three balanced lines, but this would likely result in failure aka the wet fart.

    Real coaches don't throw random players who aren't even regulars on the top line with their best players. It's a cute notion but not based in reality.


  11. I think we've improved where it counted most. That's on D. Despite all the clamouring about Tanev's shut down skill, cool as a cucumber puck moving defenceman I've never really bought into it. I do love how committed he is but a lot of that is a result of him not making better plays in the first place. As the playoffs progressed and especially against Vegas I thought he was Gawd awful in his own end running around like a tire fire and making horrible clearing attempts and reads. I'm glad we can finally move on from him regardless of any ho hum analysis metrics. Also, Stetcher, was absolutely undone in his own end in the playoffs even though I love the guys heart. 

     

    In net it's a bit of a toss up. I could easily see Holtby bouncing back with a new and exciting hockey challenge in front of him. We really don't know how Markstrom will respond in Calgary either, and even if he's decent we were moving on with Demko anyway.

     

    Up front we're pretty much the same which was good enough last year, plus we have the possibility of some added youth, although Lind is the only one I realistically see having a shot.

     

    The Covid cap has almost helped us more than hindered us as we are now excellently prepared for the ED, plus improving our team in the next year or two when our cap situation improves. 

     

    I like it. At least we won't see that lame ass D anymore. I'm excited at the possibility to improve in the future.

    Lol, I'm having deja vu. He even posts the same pics to go with the same post over, and over, and over again. This guy is bad for my mental health.

    I still think he should be our 7th defender. This season should be cultivating our young defenders who have shown signs of being ready for the show.

     

    Benn should be expecting to play both side on the bottom pairing, Right side for a while with Juolevi, Left side with Rafferty, then back to the Right side with Brisebois. Give all the kids a chance to play and show what they’ve got.

     

    I’d like to see:

    Hughes - Myers

    Edler - Schmidt 

    Juolevi - Benn

    Brisebois, Rafferty

    I actually do like that. He's shown well in limited minutes and I feel he could handle the pressure.

    Shutdown in BC is inevitable.  The tsunami of covid will hit BC like the rest of the world.

    Right now BC is keeping our numbers low by not doing very much testing. Covid is here in BC like the rest of Canada...  BC simply is not testing to keep our numbers low.

    This will work for a NDP re-election.

     

    Site c has major seismic issues.  Right now the Hydro reports will not be released for a month - thus the expediated BC election before the bad news is announced.
