Gaudette and 7 others test positive for Covid - All games till Apr 6th Postponed

Recommended Posts

It was reported by Dreger that it is the Brazilian variant that is going around the team.  Much more contagious.

 

If that is the case, presumably some more cases over the coming days.  More positives on top of the 9 already confirmer as of late tonight.

 

Hope all is well with them and their families (who won’t be part of the count and some of them are almost certainly going to fall ill).

This is pretty much the worst case scenario.  A third the team out, with at least some the Brazilian variant.  I wonder if this is it for the season.  When they were given special permission to play and travel by the provincial government they must have talked about situations like this.

Don't see them catching up all these missed games, they might just revert to a points % for the teams affected which would make sense (and obviously just knock us out of the season).

 

The rest of the season should then just be a training camp and trial for UFA signings and rookies next year.

What a dumbass post.

Dumb? Nothing is dumb about players' safety.

Look at the mess you have right now. One can only pray for their recovery. How dumb is that?

And much more debilitating, and for some groups, more lethal.

I think the ship probably sailed on a full season a while back.  The can’t push things much because of the Olympics (which hadn’t been cancelled again last I checked)... so it will be based on winning % like last year.

 

The Olympics suck. Why even hold that crap this year.

Seriously, Sportsnet? How tone deaf is this? The &^@#ing Raptors historic win is a bigger story than the Canucks' situation, which is followed closely by the Blue Jays news.

To be fair it is sports net not covid net.

 

You're grasping

 

These are young athletes in the prime of their lives and top physical shape. They will be fine.

 

Man games are lost due to sickness every season. And many teams have had covid outbreaks this season and all have recovered

I have not been logged on here for some time due to various reasons, but your post made me want to jump back on and say Bravo!  As someone who lives in Texas (flame away a holes) and who recently relaxed our Covid protocols while allowing local business owners to maintain their ways of life (to include many others employed by said owners), our numbers have actually reduced.  I am not sure what the hell is going on with the West coast (I do actually know as a Californian with a ton of family from BC down to Cali), but I will say a lot of my friends businesses have suffered causing some of them to move to states where restrictions are not so aggressive. I am not a Republican or political by any means so anyone wanting to cite "Trump" for my leanings can kiss my arse. I personally think this is another case where we are allowing BIG government (whether in Canada or US) to control us and instill fear. I am also curious to know why flu shots are not really a concern anymore because it seems to have mysteriously turned into Covid. I have travelled numerous times in the past year via plane/automobile and while I have been tested once due to "potential" symptoms, I have not had any issues at all.  Nor has my Fiancé who lives with me and has done the same, if not more travel than me.  I do not doubt the validity of the virus, but I do doubt the ACTUAL numbers being submitted as Covid related deaths when it has been proven that many are completely unrelated (at least down here in the states). We only live one life and I refuse to live it in fear because of propaganda. Anyhoo, I will sit and wait for the other side to flame me while I do not give a sh!t.

Unrelated to the Canucks but did any of you see those pictures of Bonnie heading out to visit family on a helicopter no mask on right after she told everyone don't visit your friends and family over the long weekend. Do as I say not as I do.

 

Meanwhile she is killing small business restaurants but wineries like the one she owns can still operate with customers inside.

 

This government has got to go.

 

The bc libs would have handled this better im sure, or a conservative party if there was an option.

Preach buddy! These restrictions aren't changing a thing. Just gotta let nature (covid) run its course and be personally diligent. 

 

I hate the liberal culture here. Too many protests. Too many sheep. Too many vegans :gocan: and the borderline socialist government loves it

Does that guy not understand what vaccinations do?

 Apparently not. I hate to label people but that sounded exactly like a typical American Ignoramus.

 

Hi Ya'll I'm from Merica and we doan give crap but no ones but our swelves. F Yeah, and screw everyone else.

 

Oh, and don't worry about the fact you have less than a grade 5 education stop you from posting about microbiology, physiology, world science, and medicine. Maybe next he can teach us how us how to cure cancer.

 

You got to love how he wonders out loud why the flu doesn't take hold like Corona. Ummm. it's mass vaccination. :picard:  You can't even make this stuff up, it's so mind bogglingly ignorant.

My sis in law lives in Texas and it was bad, real bad.  She lost quite a few friends and acquaintances.  Once Biden was elected they went hard on vaccinations

Testing everyday does not stop you from getting covid, it just tells you faster that you caught it.

There is no bubble, they only had to follow the same rules as the general public afaik.

It is similar but even more stringent. In addition to the rules everyone else followed they and their families are basically in a lock down scenario. No going to restaurants, or having your group of ten, etc., that normal people have/had. I know the following source doesn't state that exactly but it is what I heard at the start of the year.

The possibility exist that some of the infected Canuck players could have long term effects from what is said to be the Brazilian variant.If you haven't heard of longhaulers look it up.Long lasting chronic fatigue,brain damage where a person can't maintain concentration,in extremes the lungs can be like tissue paper.The majority of deaths and ICU patients are younger people.We can't assume because these are young athletes they will easily get over it so shouldn't be taken lightly.Lets hope for full and speedy recoveries.

NHL players should have got the Vaccine in Stage 1. Yeah, they’re young, rich, and have celebrity-status in some cases. But they do perform an important social service of keeping us entertained. In these trying times, that’s important for all of our mental health.

There's no credible source on that that I can find.  I'm having this conversation with my daughter right now.

 

I highly doubt she would be that dumb

 

Customers can go inside for wine tasting, following the same rules as retail and there's no tables, chairs etc.
