There's a 30 foot tall bronze monument which is nothing more than a giant finger in the eye to the corruption and incompetence of the league out front of the arena.


It's no wonder the league acts this way.


I do not condone the waiving of a white flag in surrender, ever, even in jest.

If the league weren't actually corrupt, then it shouldn't matter. By displaying the bias, they confirm their corruption.

Lind should have completed his 2-week quarantine by now so I assume there's a very good chance he's in the line-up given how many players are still not expected to have completed protocol by Friday.

It's only a 7 day now

IIRC, the government updated it to 1 week quarantine given the NHL is doing consistent, daily testing etc

Interesting interview with Dixon Ward just now.


Started off funny - they were talking about head injuries then asked him about when he played.  His response:  "did I play?".  He said it's a good thing things are changing (and he should know!).


Touched on Madison Bowey (Dixon's in the Okanagan running hockey schools) - said he followed him in Kelowna and he'll be an asset here.  "Big strong guy".


Also on Gaudette and how those not in the top 6 have to adjust and find their niche.  That there's so much talent in top 6's these days that even 40 goal scorers may have to adapt and find other strength/ways to contribute to a team.  That those players (#7-11 fwds) aren't in a position of strength to negotiate their "role" and have to be role "players" and do what the coach needs them to.  It isn't always about scoring, but developing into a specialist in other areas...face offs, whatever (although he said depth scoring should kick in a goal every other game and those guys have to contribute in that regard).  It was interesting...in hearing Gaud wanted more of a top role maybe this was part of it all.  That there just wasn't a spot for him in that role but they were trying to see if he could play different roles.  He said it isn't even about playing good defensively - that all forwards have to have that as a foundational skill now.  That d isn't really a role, it's just a part of everyone's game on a well rounded team.


It was a good take.
