  1. i would imagine that at least part of this is BM just doing his best to set the stage for the handoff.
  2. did the score end up 3-1 Avalanche?
  3. I think that’s a misread. I’m reading that the games will be simulcast on ESPN as well as ESPN+.
  4. I just read something about there being an mRNA based vaccine for RSA. The blurb was about having 6 mRNA vaccines in one shot, spread across each of COVID, RSA, and the flu, and how the efficacy wasn’t diminished by having all three disease vaccines in one inoculation. Let me see if I can find that tab I just closed. here we go: https://mobile.twitter.com/moderna_tx/status/1435978825377136641?s=12
  5. the more you guys talk about it, the more i think about the staff. the elevator attendants we see every game and our regular seat usher are all on the older side. being a vaccine and mask nazi is totally worth it to keep those people healthy. regardless, i'll definitely be doing my best not to contribute to any problems.
  6. I guess we’ll see. I ratted out a few people last season who weren’t masking to the ushers and the ushers didn’t hesitate to ultimatum the scofflaws (i.e. wear it or leave). I think we may find the staff being pretty aggressive about it over the first couple of games.
  7. Coaches wearing masks has efficacy both epidemiologically and socially. Masking inside the Pond - any uptake is worthwhile. Profess the mandate in hopes many wear one. I’ll wear one regardless, and I’m vaxxed (not double yet). Nothing is going to be perfect - we all know people are forging vax cards and that it’s impossible to expect Pond staff to be able to tell the difference. If they were serious, we’d all have to download and use the vax e-passport with NFC data verification (so that someone could let just use an edited screenshot). Anyway, they’ll publish best efforts and hope that most people will try to be careful and not jerks while at the rink. That’s reasonable, under the circumstances - those that are most worried will self-deselect. I think I’ll probably purchase drinks while there but I’m not sure about food. I’ll be missing the gourmet burgers until I feel more comfortable.
  8. They do the same thing in a ton of venues for drinking alcohol vs underage. Wristbands work just fine.
  9. i guess that's one take... but... Kase - that's your opinion on Kase? i would not characterize his status as living up or surpassing his projections. and i'm not sure it's even fair to bring him up with Dallas... it looks like most of his time on the Gulls was concussion recovery time. Ritchie is also a weird mention. He hasn't done anything anywhere with anyone, even fricking Boston, that says he has anything more than what he showed here. i expect his time at Toronto to be... notable, but not for any positive metric reasons. Some players just don't get better, and if he was going to get there, it would have been with Boston and the TOI he was getting there. Pettersson - he was doing fine and on the right trajectory while he was here. if he'd have stayed, and stayed linked up with Lindholm and Rakel, he very well could have done great things here. that trade was not my favorite act by BM, but there's no mark against Eakins here. Steel, Terry, Jones - i mean, come on, they had their best seasons in the NHL under Eakins last season. i don't know what you're looking for. Mahura - we need him off the taxi squad and playing regularly. i still have high hopes. another thing not on Eakins. Larsson - i put him in the same boat as Ritchie - some players just don't get better. like i've said earlier in this thread - the ducks have an absolute village of coaching and development to throw at the youngers this season, and this kind of approach has been needed for a long time, under multiple coaches, just to be even keel with what other teams in a rebuild do, especially while not having the player roster to do the development on-ice. last season was about getting them playing time and getting the players to buy into the system, by hook or crook. this season looks like it's going to be focused individual and line development with no room for excuses for players or staff if the performance isn't there.
  10. Off to a good start:
