  1. You probably aren't going to be around for too much longer if you insult other posters as well as our players. Jake had just turned 23 (not 24 as you falsely claimed) at camp last year and while he didn't meet the standard of fitness of professional athletes, to call him fat one would at least have to be in the 1% as far as fitness is concerned. The rest of your criticism is about Jake's personal life which I believe is not permitted on this forum. There are also many NHLers with 'active' lifestyles so (if your claim is true) Jake is far from alone in that regard and none of us are
  2. I don't know, something smells fishy here. *Puts tinfoil hat on* Yes... yes I am seeing it now... Putin creates the virus in a lab in Siberia, releases it in Wuhan, China. Knowing that his own appointed useful idiot would bungle the handling of the virus and China would take the lion's share of the blame and suffer the ire of the rest of the world. Now Putin magically has a vaccine and we are still in August, the rest of the world still well behind. Putin will now use the vaccine as leverage to exploit the world completing the master stroke.
  3. You could go back to his junior days in this thread, and people are questioning whether the coaching staff has a vendetta against him. A theory was even posited that one of the owners of the Hitmen was a minority stake holder on the Flames. Even you look back to the ice time he got in his draft +1 year, he was never very high up there. And this is the CHL where any half decent player gets spoon fed tons of ice time.
  4. It is my opinion that fixating on the cause of death doesn't exactly give you the entire context. Perhaps this topic hits me too close to home for me, I will just say it is my firm belief that cancer should never be a footnote.
  5. If a 20 something year old with AIDS gets the coronavirus and dies, do you simply ignore one virus and fixate on the other? If so you are being myopic for whatever reason, perhaps the same one as the poster I quoted.
  6. I meant he is a stage IV cancer survivor and considering his advanced age, that to me definitely puts him in the high risk category. If your immune system is seriously compromised, that is still playing a part in your death even though COVID ends up being the final blow.
  7. He had late stage cancer so I am surmising that did a number on his body. Personally I see it as important that we acknowledge some underlying conditions when someone dies of COVID, it helps us understand who are the most vulnerable in society. I believe the poster's response was politically motivated, regardless I think it was partially correct.
  8. Maybe, but it was terminal stupidity that accelerated his demise. Regardless condolences to his loved ones.
  9. I don't believe record in a small sample size spread out over years is necessarily indicative of who is the better coach, Maurice has more experience than Green but I haven't been blown away by what he has done while coaching the Jets. He's had some pretty good teams and yet I can only remember them underachieving in the playoffs. Now I am not particularly impressed by Green either, while I am not on the 'Fire Green' train, I do have him on short leash. We don't have 9 forwards better than Virtanen, let alone 13. Green going back to his AHL days has a propensity to stick with the plugs who can
  10. I read a compelling article the other day saying that there likely won't be a noticeable second wave, it will be just one big wave, which we can hopefully keep flattened. I also read some sources that say the seasonal flu numbers are going to be way down as well because of mask use and social distancing, and other measures like sanitizing and hand washing should also bring down numbers. We shall see.
  11. Great book, amazing read as always. Chapter 5 is a real tear-jerker, all the kids get guns to exercise their 2A rights and protect them from potential grizzlies. Inspired writing.
  12. Either quote the posts/posters that you think exhibit hatred towards any player otherwise shut your yap. No one here as far as I know was rioting so the riot had literally nothing to do with the rest of us. There is no such thing as "guilt by association", anyone who believes in it is either a moron or just being an a-hole. Either way their opinion is not important and I am not sure why any Canucks fan would repeatedly throw that in our face, which just makes me believe that you aren't really a fan and just another dull troll.
  13. I don't see any indication that they are asking Jake to tone it down in practice. I think this is just an overreaction from the Horvat clip, probably had more to do with not taking undisciplined penalties, than not playing hard. Practice is supposed to simulate game conditions so the coaches would be doing a poor job if they asked Jake to take it easy. Jake cannot afford to do so either considering he is in a contract year and needs whatever edge that he can get. Also QH is too good of a skater for Jake to catch cleanly, so no concerns for me there.
  14. The produce aisle in the store I go to is a nightmare, I need my fruits otherwise I would never step in there. They need to define the rules more clearly because the elderly man is not really an exception even though I have never seen someone take it to that extent. They probably need someone there full time just to make sure that people aren't crowding the area which happens way too often. There are quite a few people I notice many of them clearly at most risk trying to find the best item from a pile. Seems quite foolhardy to say the least.
