  1. Sorry unvaxxed players. If you don't want to get vaccinated, this is a choice you must make for yourself. The consequence for not vaxxing is potential illness. If one does not use their due diligence to avoid long-term COVID illness, then one should be penalized.


    I, for one, am fully in agreement with this protocol.

    If you are THAT scared about vaccination, then don't engage in social activities. Take the risk of COVID and see what happens. Unfortunately, no one else should pay for your stupidity. The fact that our health care system covers these morons is too much of a gift for them.

  2. On one hand, what Mailloux did wasn't good. On the other hand, there seems to be no room or opportunity for him to change. Yes, there will be consequences, but at what point is the punishment 'enough'?


    We can talk about playing hockey being a privilege, but what about other forms of employment? Logan Mailloux is undoubtedly more famous/recognizable than I am, but him getting a job at a local store might be next to impossible due to the optics involved.


    I am not defending Mailloux in any way. What he did was bad - full stop.


    There are some things you just CANNOT do in society. This is understood. Some mistakes result in heavy consequences, so you just don't do it, even if your morality clock is broken. All I am questioning is when is the punishment 'enough'? If some places like Russia give employment opportunities to the rejected, how useful is that said punishment?

    Now Kane got a restraining order against her for beating him. This whole thing is just something else:picard:

    Suddenly, the outrage crowd is silent about this 'guilt' of hers, or perhaps they'll even justify her behaviour based on his past behaviour. However, this approach will neglect that there was always another side to this story.


    This isn't the best source, admittedly, but it seems Anna isn't that poor as she claimed :rolleyes: At the very least, you can see what kind of person that she is herself.



    Make no mistake, this does not absolve Kane's behaviour and actions at all. They are separate to her issues. What I'm highlighting is that we cannot vouch for one side or the other at this time. They BOTH have issues. The fact that Kane got a restraining order from her should mean something.


    I honestly feel bad for the kid. Neither of these two people are fit to be parents.

    All I can say is that the Liberal would have been running away with it if Freeland was the leader. 


    I really would love to see this. She's more than earned her stripes. I think we'll see her being a leader for a party, with a serious chance at winning office, sooner rather than later.

    So two things. I am aware of Eriksson's numbers the previous season. That said, even at the time, we thought 6 years is a bit too long. He was 30 getting a 6 year contract, no one was too upset with the actual annual cap, but the worry was the length. 


    And yes that free agent signing that year was a disaster for many teams but it doesn't take away that Benning overpaid for Eriksson. 


    And not all those contracts you mentioned were bad contracts. Even the ones that did end up not aging well still paid some dividends (Lucic's first year as an Oiler did help the team get a good playoff run)



    They're all bad contracts, given their amount, including Lucic. He didn't play like a 6M man, and neither did Eriksson.


    Frans Nielson just got bought out, and Andrew Ladd's contract required THREE second round picks in consecutive years to get rid of it.

    I think as much as people are tough on Eriksson, personally I don't blame him for getting overpaid and underperforming since the day he became a Canuck. The job of Eriksson's agent is supposed to give Eriksson his big payday when negotiating with Benning. It was Benning's job to assess the situation and try get Eriksson in a team friendly deal. Like if Benning paid me 6 Million and 6 years to play hockey even though I know that I suck, I would take it. Who wouldn't? 


    Eriksson and his side made Benning pay a premium and it's great for Eriksson and I am happy he is set for life and can take care of his family, he's got to do what he thinks is best for him. He outsmarted and out negotiated Benning so this is all on Benning.


    So to me this is 10% on Eriksson and 90% on Benning

    Um. No?  No one 'outsmarted' anyone. Eriksson absolutely deserved his contract at the time of the signing.




    Some people will defend Eriksson's use here. But no one's going to defend that the contract of Eriksson now was good. People like you are unable to see the multiple dimensions involved with this.


    Furthermore, that UFA crop was full of duds. Guess the GMs all didn't do their 'homework.' :rolleyes: Your perspective on this is obviously incomplete.

    VANCOUVER -- People who can't get vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons won't be exempt from B.C.’s upcoming vaccine passport system, nor will those who choose not to get immunized for religious reasons.

    Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, who announced the requirement Monday afternoon, said those individuals will have to miss out on discretionary services and activities, such as dining in restaurants and attending live sporting events, until the proof-of-vaccination requirement is lifted next year

    I fully agree with this decision. People who opt not to vaccinate because of medical reasons probably shouldn't be wandering around anyway. Their situation is unique and they must take steps to make themselves safe. They can't complain about COVID restrictions when they are the ones who can't vaccinate.

    I don't understand why you have to make vaccination seem like it's some new concept. The reason you get vaccinated (including COVID) is to prepare the body for future viral attacks. Stuff like smallpox used to be rampant, but vaccines changed that. There's also stuff like polio shots, and measles.


    It's laughable how the so-called anti-covid crowd have no clue about what they're spewing.

    Properly educated??.. how??... are you an immunologist?? Are you a specialist in vaccines?? My best friend's wife works in healthcare. She got the poke in January because she was pressured into it by her work and fellow employees just like you. She will never work again, in and out of hospital since then and no help from the vax company, the government or her work... too bad so sad huh??.

    Works, but not will never work again?


    She joined the wrong industry if she thinks vaccines are infringing on her rights. :rolleyes:
