that is interesting because I remember people saying the same thing in the off season

but 

that is just not the way Green coaches

 

I will believe it if/when it happens

This isnt the offseason. The whole  team including green is coming off Covid and they are expected to play 19 games in a month..

 

Its not anout a choice. And you should know that. 

 

Theyre going to have to rotate players in and out every game to get guys a rest.

I should know that

and so should Travis

but Travis has never shown any compunction to rotate players

unless injury or players like Chatter poop the bed and go -4 in a game against Toronto

 

like I said, I will believe it if I see it

Let's see if we can make Sunday's game a little more fair.

 

Someone see if they can slip some undercooked chicken into Toronto's pregame meal..... ;)      :emot-parrot:

I doubt it. They will probably carry 3 extra forwards and a extra pair of d-men and rotate them. That way the players play 3 games a week instead of 4. No matter what is said publicly everyone knows the season is toast.   

 

There are only 4 regular recalls after the TDL.  Emergency recalls are unlimited.  

 

Emergency recalls are only possible if they drop below the 12 F + 6 D players available.  Sautner and Chatfield have just been called up on emergency basis but will have to be sent back down once a roster player can take their spot. 

 

If they are using emergency recall it means they have no additional player available to play at that position.  Roster players can’t come out of the lineup if able to play.  If they have extra players available to play at the position then the recall wouldn’t be on emergency basis. 

 

At the TDL the Canucks had 22 active players.  Pettersson/Beagle on LTIR and Pearson on IR.  If Pearson and all the others can return they could be up to 27 players after exercising 4 regular recalls.

MEDIA | Bo Horvat on Canucks COVID Situation

 

He looks like dog crap. My heart breaks for these guys. Who knows how this virus will manifest down the road. 

I think the most revealing part of the interview was his snide comment towards the speed of the vaccination roll out in Canada. It’s funny how we had to put this Canadian division into place to protect us from the wildly rampant COVID spread in the US. Good job Canada, way to save the day. 

 

Ironically. If we were making normal trips to the US in the pacific division they’d be vaccinated.
 

I am working in west Texas right now. On Wednesday I walked into the Reeves county civic centre which is in the middle of absolutely nowhere and got a Moderna Vaccine without any citizenship or anything. I’m down here on a work visa. I was in and out within 20 mins.

 

We have quite a few American players on our team and they must absolutely livid over this crap. Canada, BC, NHLPA, and the NHL should all be ashamed of themselves.

And another thing, these guys should be considered essential workers. Cant go to the ski hill, can’t go to the gym, can’t go out to eat, can’t have a funeral, cant have friends over. Can’t go to a movie, cant travel, can’t blow money at the casino. 
 

One of the few things we can do is stay home and watch hockey. They are doing a service to all of us. Vaccinate them god dammit.

I dont know about all that...

 

You can watch a million different things on tv or listen to on radio.. you want every single person on tv or radio to jump the line? 

 

Or just hockey players because you like to watch hockey... 

Thats rediculous

 

Amyways.. almost all of them have had it now. Built up immunity.. only like 1 in tens of millions get it twice..

 

We think one of our friends did but 1st time he was not tested and in south america.. maybe bad food or water...3rd world country...

I looked into it extremely rare...

You do know all Canadian teams turned down the vaccine due to fallout from US teams getting it right?

 

And no, they are not essential service, for most people they have zero impact on their lives.

 

Id rather they shut down the season then have one person die that could have been saved had they gotten the vaccine.

Let’s say +/-100 people per team would need to be vaccinated. That’s not even 1000 shots guys. They are at higher risk due to their proximity to each other. Fallout? Like I said before, I waltzed into the civic centre in the most remote county in Texas and got vaccinated within 10 mins. You don’t even need to be a citizen down here. The only fallout should be towards our failed government. They are vaccinating like 3,000,000 people a day in the US and we are sitting here making a big political song and dance o out 1000 shots to protect all the teams in the Canadian division. It’s not like we are putting black jack dealers ahead of nurses. 
 

Attention: I was extremely intoxicated when I posted this. Please don’t quote me on this cause I don’t want to discuss it at all.

Lack of access to vaccines is the biggest difference between Canada and the US. Since it’s not produced here we have to fight for every available dose. 
 

Bo did not make any “snide comment” about the speed of the vaccine rollout here. He made reference to the reality of it and pointedly said that there were groups that required vaccination first.

The point I’m trying to make here is that we shouldn’t be in this position. Everyone in Canada always has that “we got free healthcare” swagger around Americans, but we are a global joke right now. The Canucks getting wiped out by the virus doesn’t make us look too good. Like I said before, if we weren’t too cool to travel to our normal pacific division teams, the entire team could’ve walked into a vaccination hub and got vaccinated in minutes. This Canadian division hilariously backfired in our faces.

Jake is doing fine, talked to his dad yesterday...issue is he was one of the last to test positive but thankfully for him or anyone who has gotten covid, his symptoms have been mild

Good. This should be the time for Jake to show some responsibility and be a physical standout, the team needs now protection more than ever. I hope he realizes that.
