soooo... it looks like just about every team has a prospect camp, then a rookie camp, then regular camp. A lot of teams have already announced when prospect camp starts, and that's Sept 13-14. This being a holiday weekend, I didn't expect any announcements from the Caps. Maybe tues they will finally let the fans in on when camp starts.

Post by: richkrt99 on Friday September 10, 2021, 12:50:37 PM Eastern
So looking at the current team Roster...


Our O looks exactly the same as last year....yet another year older


Goaltending is exactly the same as last year....but a year older (which is a good thing for these two)


Our D is substantially weaker than last year.  We are plus a Kempney coming off a major injury, and minus a Charra and Dillon.


So we lost ALOT (okay....ALL) of our toughness on the blue line, and not much else has changed.  Orlov is now our team D tough guy?  We moved up van Riemsdyk from Hershey to fill a spot.


Also we added Mike Vecchione as a 13th forward...who is 28 and has played a total of 2 NHL games, so I don't know him at all, but based on his age is there to fill a roster spot.


Well if you were happy with last year's performance ,then get ready for another great year.   :clap:


Maybe our two young goalies with both blossom into surprising superstars
Maybe Kuzy will rekindle his heart and drive and lead this team
Maybe Ovi will be inspired by his new contract and lead and carry this team to victory
Maybe they will actually Free Willy and he will have a huge uptick in performance and impact
Maybe big Tony Ray-Ray will live up to his potential have have a career inspiring transformation
Maybe Sprong will Spring and blossom into legit consistent scoring threat
Maybe the D won't be as suspect as I think it appears to be
Maybe they let McMichael, Fever and Alexeyev get some actual NHL playing time and one or all three blossom.


Being a Cap fan for the entirety of their existence, I guess I should be used to mediocracy.


Inspiring post, I know.


GO CAPS  :)

yep, not an encouraging outlook for postseason play, or the opening night goon fest that the Rags appeare to want.


We can only hope management is still trying to move a contract like Kuzy or Carlson. Moving any less money wise is a waste of time IMO.
Title: Re: The dedicated boredom thread for bored boardees... even Rich
Post by: Mickstix on Friday September 10, 2021, 04:45:02 PM Eastern
Yes, it's a family recipe to hopefully make the playoffs and fizzle in round 1 again!  :)


 If they were gonna move Kuzy (no chance on Carlson) they'd of done it already.. Maybe once the season starts and a team has a LTIR injury or something, but that's about the only chance, imo. I doubt they even want to move him. Him and Nicky (and Carlson) are Ovi's only shot at the record and that's probably as important or maybe even more so, to management, then getting another cup.

Anybody heard who/how games will be broadcast/televised this season?


I read somewhere TNT will broadcast the season opener, but won't they block that locally?


Do we have a "local" or regional broadcast network yet?



Title: Re: The dedicated boredom thread for bored boardees... even Rich
Post by: alta on Wednesday September 15, 2021, 10:34:58 AM Eastern
just a guess at this point, but I don't see the local coverage changing. There's been no reports of Lacher, Joe, Brent, Guido, ect, looking for new jobs

So....NBCSN is going to cover the games....I thought Turner and ESPN bought the NHL rights, but we are stuck with NBCSN?
I love Joe B, but.....


I can't get NBCSN     :'(


So I googled and read NBCSN is shutting down and USA network will pick up NHL coverage.  Still don't know what that means for "local" coverage?   :huh:


I am HOPING it's some sort of USA Network that my friggin Dish programming will actually have an option for.

ESPN and TNT are splitting the load for national broadcasts....

I still don't see local broadcasts changing, it would have to change for 30 teams. 30 teams times 82 games each is 2460 games in the season. Maybe it reverts to Comcast sports, or maybe Monumental picks it up. Still no word on that other than our regular broadcast guys apparently still have jobs.

With the season/preseason right around the corner I am ready for hockey. Sports Washington Chanel 846 on Comcast Mid-Atlantic and the aforementioned. Unless things have changed and MASN pick some up but Comcast changes sometimes. NHL Network too when applicable. Caps #9 in preseason power rankings the other day.

saw a thing two days ago that he wasn't in town yet, then saw some of yesterday's media day and he was here. This definitely explains why he was a late show.


On the bright side, this means someone from Hershey will get some needed playing time up here.

Well, apparently I DO NOT have NBCSW or ANY regional sports networks avail on DISH....STILL! They are still fighting over contracts.


So...I have NO ability to watch about 90% of the games (at home)


Same goes for MASN and Nats baseball...but not like anybody wants to watch them right now.


Fucking suck ass DISH.  And I have really liked them for the last 6 years or so.  Much better than DirecTV.  Never had a complaint or issue with them ever...until this.


I called them and they gave me bunch of excuses why they can't offer and it's so expensive for them to offer and it raises everyone's programming costs....blah, blah, blah.
I told them DirecTV offers these channels for 9.99/month.  I'd gladly pay that or more to get them, but not even an option.


Might be switching soon.

hey rich, I'm really curious where you live where you don't have good/any service. You mentioned enough so I know the general area. But I'm curious exactly where. There's a few places out there where I've looked at property before, and lack of service would definitely be a deal breaker. Maybe send a PM, no need to tell the whole world. I don't mean exact address either, just street or neighborhood.


though depending on which way the Virginia election goes in November I might just be done with this state, there's a few other areas that have piqued my interest

Switch to DirecTV bro.. You're house is already setup for it. If I ever leave DTV it'll be to go back to Xfinity (cable) due to costs. As is, we get the EXTRA package. With Regional sports, whole home HD/DVR on 3 tv's it's like 130.00/month. I call and get a 45$ x 12 months discount every year. If they ever stop giving me the discount is when I'll be gone.


Only thing I don't like is the signal gets interrupted if a thunderstorm comes over. (Which is pretty frequent in the summer, but with the streaming and shit that comes with it you can usually NOT miss any programming with a smart tv or phone, etc.) But you probably have that same issue with Dish? They need bigger roof top dish's to get that damn signal though a rain cloud.  :raised-eyebrow:

I had DirecTV at one point...or maybe two. 
I may end up doing that next week.  I looked at the prices/packages today.  Called the wife and warned her that the current DISH DVR maybe bye-bye soon so she better get her fill of all her damn crime drama CSI, Blue bloods, rizzoli & Isles, Bones, and every other damn crime show she has recorded.  I heard you can copy them OFF the DVR onto another drive, but you have to have the DIsh service in order to watch them.  Meh....Don't have any hockey recorded on the thing now so nothing else is sacred  ;D

Damn.  Poor Vrana.  Needs to skate out from under that cloud that developed over his career.  Frigging 20 minutes into his first skate?  Yikes/


How do you mess up a shoulder bad enough to need surgery in 20 minutes of skating?  Did he fall into the boards?  Did he get checked into the boards?  I would not think there would be checking 20 minutes into the 1st practice.
(Did he perhaps trip over his pouting lip?)  Okay, scratch that.  Not nice, but he DID wet his bed here so I didn't have much sympathy for him being traded to Detroit.  I did wish him well and hoped he'd find his game there.  Sucks to get hurt anyway.


What a bummer for him and Detroit both.

Not surprised by any of the moves or that Copely was put on AND cleared waivers.  Copely had a few moments where he shined, but I think he is pretty much an AHL caliber goalie.


Caps roster at 27 need to get down to 23, but with the Cap hit they realistically can only carry 21, MAYBE 22 depending on who the last 1 or 2 are.  With Backy a question mark, I assume if he is IR then his cap hit won't count but not sure what the rules are with IR and timing and roster and such.
[size=78%]  [/size]


Left on the chopping block:  Seven guys and four will have to go (likely more like 6 to stay under Cap - unless Backy is IR)


C - McMichael
C - Lapierre
L - Malenstyn
C - Pilon


D - Fehervary
D - Irwin  (who is this guy - 33 years old, came from Buffalo)  Is he NHL caliber D-man?


G - Fucale


I'm leaning toward leaving up McMichael and Fever.  That's a roster of 22 and Caps might not be able to swing that cap Hit.  Might put them couple hundred grand over with a 22nd man.
I don't know Irwin's play at all and he is a budget salary at $750k, but I'd just as soon give Fever that spot.  Although....if he is just on roster and never gets to play, then maybe better for him to actually play with the Bears.


We shall see.


Anybody heard a word on Backy?

For those of you taxpayers in Fairfax County...good to know your tax dollars are well spent.


The McLean Community Center is hosting a "family friendly" LGBTQ+ party on your dime.  It's open to those 6 and up.  Yeah, I want my 6 year old at this event.
But I guess you get better results if you start the LGTQ+ induction in the early years.

McLean Community Center - LGBTQ+ Ally Week Party on the Plaza (with free t-shirts!) (mcleancenter.org) (https://www.mcleancenter.org/special-events/upcoming/icalrepeat.detail/2021/10/08/12891/-/lgbtq-ally-week-party-on-the-plaza-with-free-t-shirts)

Now, we all know I'm an old white guy so therefore must be a bigot, racist, culturally insensitive and my input is thus null and void, BUT...
What would the uproar be if a government owned facility hosted a party to promote heterosexual family values and Christian values?  How about the nutzo Nazi groups?...or any other non "politically-correct" special interest groups?  I'm neither pro Nazi nor pro LBGTQ+, but I don't want either group hosting a "family friendly" event at a government owned facility.
Or any other special interest group for that matter.  Is this what the purpose of the county government is?  To promote the values of special interest groups?

Sorry, but since I am culturally disabled....Wait.....can I still use the word disabled?


So, since I am culturally "less special-abled" I had to look up what the + means in LBGTQ+.

What's wrong with Baseball?


The second best team in the entire league of 30 teams after a full 162 games season (based on the record) is the LA Dodgers who have an astounding record of 106w 56L
puts them 1 game behind the Giants who were 107 55 and happen to be in the same division.


That's a full 10 games better than almost all other teams making the playoffs, yet they have to play a wildcard game to get in?


162 games is a ridiculous amount of games and to be 10 games better than other teams in the playoffs (and 28 games better than the next team in your division), and yet not get a full playoff chance is stupid.


I'm no Dodgers fan but that's dumb.


Dodgers are 18 games better than the Braves who are in.


Good thing I'm a Nats fan so I haven't had to contemplate any potential playoff unfairness in any serious nature in say....4-5 months.  :smirk:

Dodgers win their wildcard with a walk-off HR.  Pretty exciting...if you are a Dodger fan - or a baseball fan.


Which apparently I aint since I forgot the game was on and could have watched the conclusion after my delayed Caps win.


Good for the Dodgers though, they deserved to be in the playoffs with their record this year.


Trea Turner was 2 for 4.  Can't believe the Nats traded him away.  I realize they are now in rebuilding mode, but Trea's a guy you can build around.  Turner and Soto are two of the best hitters in baseball.  Not to mention Trea is super fast and a great SS.  WTF would you not hold onto him? :huh:

Mick -
I assume it's a combination of rehab / reconditioning and a salary slide dump of just over $1 million, if I remember correctly.  There's a max amount you can dump sending someone down.

I would assume the same, but even at that seems strange.  Aren't we short a center?  Does that mean Lapierre is the last man standing?
And with Backy out, which we knew would be the case, don't we have room for McMichael AND Lapierre?  NVM - forgot about Ovie


Ovi  Kuzy   Willie
Mantha  Eller  Spronger
Sheary  Lapierre  Oshie
Hags  Dowd  Hathy


And....What "additional" transactions could they expect to make by tomorrow?

12 skaters, 6 D and 2 G is only ...... 20  (sorry, had to get my shoes off there)  :snicker:


guys on IR don't count and with Backy on IR (Is he actually on IR?), then his salary don't count against the cap which means we got room for McMichael, Maelstrom, Kempney, Pilon, Irwin,...hell anybody they want up to 23 players.  With Backy out, salary cap is not an issue.

I figured there you were waiting on the Caps to actually post a lineup...so knowing them maybe by 7pm or so.


Lavy said Ovie is gametime decision so hell we'll see when we see.  I wonder if that's why they put Lappy at 3C and left McMichael to maybe fill in for Ovie.

Yea, not sure how many (Caps) games are scheduled to be on ESPN+, but for those games like tonight, they won't be on TV of any kind unless it's via a stream. They'll all be on stream eventually. Nascar even had a "stream only" weekend this year for the Xfinity series.

Not that it applies to me since I have no real internet at home, but....
when you guys stream...do you stream to a laptop or pc and then connect to a tv or are you streaming direct from the TV?  Just curious.  I stream at work on my PC, but not the most comfortable place to watch a hockey game.  I tried once to stream direct to/from the TV in the other room, but once I got it working, I kept getting annoying pop up adds and "girls near me" looking for men and such.  Kind of difficult to keep shutting them down with a TV remote so I just went back to my PC.

SmartTv is all you need, via the web browser feature. (sounds like what you did? Tv browser may not have very good antivirus/popup protection?) But I have a computer hooked up to my AV system, which feeds a HDMI signal to my tv. So, I just log in here, click a stream link and go, same as if I was on the laptop.

I have Smart TVs but I refuse to connect them to the interwebs. Most of my streaming is done with the  play station, but sometimes, like it looks for tonight, I will plug the laptop into a tv with an hdmi cable

Not that it applies to me since I have no real internet at home, but....
when you guys stream...do you stream to a laptop or pc and then connect to a tv or are you streaming direct from the TV?  Just curious.  I stream at work on my PC, but not the most comfortable place to watch a hockey game.  I tried once to stream direct to/from the TV in the other room, but once I got it working, I kept getting annoying pop up adds and "girls near me" looking for men and such.  Kind of difficult to keep shutting them down with a TV remote so I just went back to my PC.

Yea, hopefully it's just a game.. There's a problem with Lapierre though. Something about his entry level contract and only being allowed to play in 9 games? I don't know the details but it burns a year of his deal or something along those lines, if he plays in more than 9 games.

Yikes.  That's gonna hurt.  Oshie is the one that makes his lines go.  Not knocking SHeary or Eller, but Eller does not drive the play in the corners and work the puck out so Lappy or other can score.
I like Sheary and his play - always hustle, always tenacious, but Oshie will be missed.  Without Oshie, your third line is more like a ...third line...except your missing your best forechecker.


And week to week..... :-(

Don't they have a 10- day DL they can put him on  (to save Cap $$$)


I think they can do it after the fact and effective from day one, but not doing it now makes me wonder to see if they are waiting to see if it is going to be longer.
I tried to look it up and all I found was it was a minimum of 7 days  :huh:


found it - IR does NOT reduce cap it, but allows the roster spot to be replaced.  Has to be Long Term IR to remove cap hit.  LTIR is minimum 10 games and 24 days (as we saw with Backy), so now we know why they have not opted for that yet.

After the Phoenix game, OV needs 2 goals to tie Brett Hull(741) for 4th all time. Then OV needs just 25 more to tie Jagr for 3rd. If OV has a 36 goal season he will pass Jagr for 3rd outright. Howe is in 2nd with 801, Gretzgy is 1st with 894.


also, OV currently has 596 assists, so another milestone will be reached shortly

Coyotes have still yet to win 0-8-1
and
Canes still undefeated 0-8 0



so apparently if you type 8 hyphen 0 you get 8-0




and Panthers lost to Boston in shootout, so no longer undefeated.

He's still hated and called a dirty driver for crashing Jr 13 years ago. Fans memories are as long as the drivers. Especially when it's against one of the chosen ones.

what's Denny's home track? I always thought Richmond. I was in the same section as him during a spring race, that fall he was in the car, never met him though.


I haven't been "a fan" of any one driver since the 2 was black and gold, there's just a couple I don't like, can't stand. The Bush family comes to mind.

Your right, RIR is definitely his home track.. Think he's from Chesterfield. Home state, same thing. He was adored in Martinsville until the Elliott incident. 


Never was a Wallace fan. Much respect for him, but not a fan. Same for Dale, Rudd, Waltrip, Martin, Gordon, etc, etc. Have always been a JGR fan of whoever drove his cars. Kinda still liked Jarrett after he went to Yates, but since it was a ford.. Boo!  :snicker:

Back when she was campaigning for former Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Harris said, "What happens in Virginia will, in large part, determine what happens in 2022, 2024, and on.

Well let's hope so !

When I was watching the ball game and the election results, Youngin was up like 6pts with 90% counted and they kept saying...but we haven't counted all the mail in votes from Loudoun and Fairfax counties....
I was just waiting for a replay of the presidential election when all of a sudden all these mail in ballots reversed the trend.

Anyway....YIPEE!

They will likely move him to LTIR later and just make the date retroactive....don't have to assign him immediately to the LTIR, but yeah....I don't seen him back inside of 3 weeks anyway, so not sure what difference it makes.

Not sure why they'd wait to put him on LTIR. The last thing they'll do is rush him back. I can't see being back in under a month after shoulder (any) surgery? Whatever, next man up!  >:(

Dowd is on IR...

the way Dowd went down it looks like a hamstring, which means he's going to out for a while. Still don't know if that's related to his injury from a couple games ago.


I have yet to see anything definite about Vtec, bringing up Fucale may be a precaution

Post by: richkrt99 on Wednesday November 10, 2021, 05:06:28 PM Eastern
Sucks for Dowd.  Hammy is tough.  Not like the Caps needed any more injuries, but better now than end of May.  Losing Vitek is going hurt bad.  Hope it's just a minor maintenance issue and not a real injury.


Caps have a brutal schedule the next 10 games...8/10 games are against at the very least - solid teams,  and 7/10 are on the road.  Play the Panthers twice and Carolina once to end November for the last 3 of this 10 game stretch.


Really need to beat Columbus and Shitsburgh the next two cause after that...it get tough (except for maybe Montreal and Seattle)


Go Caps

Not surprised, they aren't going to carry 3 goalies. I expect Vtec to start tomorrow against the Hens.


On the bright side, the Caps have someone to replace Sammy next year. Which is what I expect unless Sammy shows some significant improvement by the end of the season.

Saw that this morning.  Good on Dowd. $1.3 per for him is pretty fair.  Sounds cheap honestly, but he was at $750k so decent pay raise for him. Not the most skilled guy, but definitely solid and his face off percentage has greatly improved and he is a solid 4c workhorse that fits well with this team.

Selfishly, as a Cap fan, I'd like them to let him play so he doesn't come back from the break pouting like a little bitch.


But as a fan of justice.... :(   Sad - WTF is the point of banning him for four years if you are going to lift the ban for what is realistically the first major international event he would have played in anyway?

Nice the Caps are on a winning streak - but really they are just keeping pace with the Conference/Division leaders...  I'll take it.


Our division is really tough.  As expected, only a few games/points from 1st place to 6th place so...keep it up.



At least the Panthers finally started to come back down to reality...lost their last four in a row (last two were SO and OT losses), still leading the entire conference though.


Rest of the month is pretty tough schedule.  Need to keep it going.


GO Caps!!!

Congrats to Brouwer.  He was a solid guy when here.  Had some big moments.


His best contribution to the Caps.....he was in the trade that brought Oshie here  :smirk: .  No knock against Brouwer, and not that he was the reason we got Oshie, but....he was part of that deal.


Enjoy your retirement.

and...what has he been doing the last two years if he hasn't played a game in two years?  Was he playing on the Blues AHL squad?
found it....He was put on and cleared waivers Jan, 2020, so played on the AHL squad.  (He was on a 1-year, two-way contract)


Funny if you watch the goal clips in the link....MOJO is on the ice for both of those goals

What animal eats a pumpkin....or a jack o lantern?


I know deer and groundhog do, but.....did they climb the stairs to my porch and roll them down into the yard?  And they ate a heck of alot of it...like 1/3 of it.  Happened on two different nights last week or so?  And the one they chose is older and starting to mold inside at the bottom?


And what is the difference in a groundhog and a woodchuck?


And who else is bored?  I know the Caps played twice this week, but it doesn't feel like it since I didn't really watch either game.

A blue whale's tongue weighs as much as an elephant.


Flamingo's eat with their heads upside down.


Polar bears have black skin


White-tailed jackrabbits have been recorded leaping 21' in the air (vertically)


A group of parrots is know as a pandemonium


The loudest critter on earth....The Pistol Shrimp (2cm long) is capable of snapping it's claw shut so rapidly, that it creates a bubble which collapses to produce a sonic blast, louder than a sonic boom.


And last, but not least...The loudest animal relative to size is the Water Boatman, 12mm long, and can produce 99dB of sound by rubbing its genitalia across its abdomen  (sounds like something a certain Florida boatman would do...if only he could)  :raspberry:

How can 23 NHL teams be above .500 (and many WAY above) and only 9 teams be below .500?


Some of the good team got to face good teams now an then.


I don't care how much Mick likes it...This kissing your sister shit is fucking up basic math.


Oh wait...it's my sister  :-X

I hope the league isnt using the test that the CDC told everyone to stop using because of false positives and the inability to differentiate between the wuhan and regular flu. The CDC made that recommendation back in the summer.

That test by the way, was(is?) the primary wuhan test. A few months ago when the recommendation was made I dont think there were any other options.

* just saw where all 3 were on the ice for morning skate, so maybe they're just being cautious since the goalie coach got put on protocol?

Yea, Nicky is probably still a ways off. Good to see him the actual mix though! Think they said the goal was to get him in a game before Christmas?  Also looks like TVR and Dowd are off the flu list.

DoPs is a fucking joke

Yeah, what he said....a fucking joke.


Main point of contact was the head.... direct hit to the head.... made no effort to avoid the hit....hit player in a defenseless position with head down...player injured on the play.  You know....basically ALL the parameters for a bad hit.  (except the hitter wasn't a #43)


This is what's wrong with DOPS - NO consistency.  They need to blur the numbers and names on the video and let an impartial panel review these so there is no bias....but then there would still be team bias and everyone could still tell who is who.  But really, if their job is to protect the players, then they need to set clear guidelines and actually follow them.  Then every player would know what the rules are.  Either that or just make is simple and make it automatic.  Hit a guy in the head, penalty & suspension...no matter what.  Just like clearing the puck over the glass in the D zone - automatic penalty intentional or not.

yep, Sgarbossa was ineligible last night because he tested positive for the wuhan


Back in July the CDC recommended everyone stop using the PCR test because of false positives and its inability to differentiate between the wuhan and regular flu. As best as I can determine, most places are still using the PCR test.

I agree with you, I'm not sure what the NHL shutting down for a week is going to do in the greater scheme of things.


But the rest of your post is off base.  The latest weekly report on new cases (Dec. 12-18, I believe) showed that the Omicron variant had exploded to account for 73% of new cases, from less than 1% two weeks earlier and 13% the previous week.  Omicron is now taking over as the dominant strain of COVID in the country.  There have been a few Omicron deaths so far, but only a few -- but that's because deaths are a lagging indicator.  Since Omicron has only been widespread in the U.S. for a relatively short time, it will be into 2022 before deaths from the Omicron variant show up en masse.


And uh, the US is going to record more than 300,000 deaths from COVID this year.  It's less than cancer and heart disease, but much more than the others you mentioned.  And then of course there are the ongoing effects of "long COVID" that affect so many -- but it's the American way; if something isn't brought out in bold letters, it doesn't really exist.


The ONE reason above all others that our society is "hysterical about COVID" is the distinct possibility of wide scale collapse of the U.S. health care system.  Since health care represents about 20% of our economy, that IS a big deal.  Now if all the unvaccinated people in the country would agree that they will treat their COVID at home rather than going to the doctor or hospital when they get seriously ill, then the healthcare stresses due to COVID would largely disappear.  And the people with other conditions whose treatments are being delayed or shunted aside to make room for COVID patients would be able to be treated in a timely fashion.


I have had quite a bit of association with the health care field in a number of different ways over my lifetime.  I know the stresses and strains that the profession puts on people.  When you see the "scare headlines" about the crisis in the system and among healthcare workers -- believe it.

You're backing up a claim of no Omicron deaths with a post that is 8 days old?


Look, i grant that there are few deaths to Omicron so far -- and there should be.  It's really only exploded in the past couple of weeks in this country.  In reality, IF Omicron is a relatively less frequently lethal strain than previous ones (mixed signals on that so far), and IF we can provide adequate care of the more seriously ill with the PROVEN mitigating treatments (NOT Ivermectin!!), hopefully we can limit the mortality from this strain.  But that still doesn't address the #1 issue, the strain on the healthcare system, and it might even exacerbate it, because more people who might have died will be saved through extensive hospital treatment -- which is what requires the staffing and attention.

[size=1.385em]NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. health officials say 2021 is shaping up to be even deadlier than last year.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]It's too early to say for sure, since all the death reports for November and December won’t be in for many weeks. But based on available information, it seems likely 2021 will surpass last year's record number of deaths by at least 15,000, said Robert Anderson, who oversees the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's death statistics.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]Last year was the most lethal in U.S. history, due largely to the COVID-19 pandemic. A CDC report being released Wednesday shows 2020 was actually even worse than the agency previously reported.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]The report presents a final tally for last year of about 3.384 million U.S. deaths, about 25,000 more than a provisional count released earlier this year. Such jumps between provisional and final numbers are common, but 2020's difference was higher than usual because of a lag in death records from some states that switched to new electronic reporting systems, Anderson said.[/size]

[size=1.385em][/color]The CDC this week also revised its estimate of life expectancy for 2020. Life expectancy at birth that year was 77 years, a decrease of 1.8 years from 2019. The agency previously estimated the decline at 1.5 years.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]Anderson said it's likely that the nation will see more than 3.4 million deaths in 2021. Other experts said they think deaths for the year will end up either about the same as in 2020, or higher.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]“It's really sad,” said Ali Mokdad, a mortality statistics expert at the University of Washington.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]A large reason is COVID-19, which hit the U.S. hard around March 2020 and became the nation's No. 3 cause of death, behind heart disease and cancer.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]Last year, COVID-19 was the underlying cause in about 351,000 deaths. This year, the number is already at 356,000, and the final tally could hit 370,000, Anderson said.[/size]
[size=1.385em][/color]Experts also think the 2021 numbers will be affected by a drug overdose epidemic that is expected to — for the first time — surpass 100,000 deaths in a calendar year.[/size]

And uh, the US is going to record more than 300,000 deaths from COVID this year.  It's less than cancer and heart disease, but much more than the others you mentioned.  And then of course there are the ongoing effects of "long COVID" that affect so many -- but it's the American way; if something isn't brought out in bold letters, it doesn't really exist.


The ONE reason above all others that our society is "hysterical about COVID" is the distinct possibility of wide scale collapse of the U.S. health care system.  Since health care represents about 20% of our economy, that IS a big deal.  Now if all the unvaccinated people in the country would agree that they will treat their COVID at home rather than going to the doctor or hospital when they get seriously ill, then the healthcare stresses due to COVID would largely disappear.  And the people with other conditions whose treatments are being delayed or shunted aside to make room for COVID patients would be able to be treated in a timely fashion.


I have had quite a bit of association with the health care field in a number of different ways over my lifetime.  I know the stresses and strains that the profession puts on people.  When you see the "scare headlines" about the crisis in the system and among healthcare workers -- believe it.




A great amount of strain could be taken off the healthcare system if the focus wasn't entirely on the vaccines, which are clearly only partially effective, masks and the like.  Why doesn't anyone talk about therapeutics?  Why are medicines that are proven to work even actively disparaged?  Why is the scientific truth that natural immunity is vastly more effective than vaccines also ignored?  Why has a one size fits all approach been taken from the beginning which ignores the differences in age, health, etc. among people which determines their vulnerability to a severe reaction to the virus?  Why do some people seem to have a vested interest in the public continuing to be fearful and uneasy?  Only a few people ask these questions and the people making policy would rather attack those asking them than give rational answers.

  “The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-2 days prior to onset of symptoms and the 2-3 days after,” reads the CDC’s statement (https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2021/s1227-isolation-quarantine-guidance.html). “Therefore, people who test positive should isolate for 5 days and, if asymptomatic at that time, they may leave isolation if they can continue to mask for 5 days to minimize the risk of infecting others.”

but the NHL is still relying on the PCR test....

His NHL career winning percentage is .637 which is damn good.


Also...on a "lighter" note....they have him listed at 5'-9", 170lbs  :lol:

boredom thread...


Dale Hunter is the only player in history with 1000 pts and 3000 PIM.  Dale was my favorite player at the time (and for a very long time).  Named a dog after him.  ;D


Career stats of 1020 pts and 3565 PIM...which lands him second all time for the most PIM behind Tiger Williams with 3971.


Dale had 270 career fights.  Although, I don't remember him as a real heavyweight fighter...mostly a VERY pesky player who was always stirring the pot.  Great competitor.


When they demolished the old Cap Center....the Capitals gave Hunter the penalty box from there  :snicker:

technically, management pulled the home penalty box from the old arena and gave it to Huntsy at his sweater retirement ceremony, which was before the old Cap Center was demolished

as I recall, as I was at that game, they also gave him an suv and a horse trailer

Heard part of a Lavi interview and a stat was thrown out that 73% of the league has had Covid.  The interview was NOT about this, but he also mentioned most guys aren't that sick and seem to pop back quickly.
Basically the comment was regarding the fact that most of the league has had it so rosters and remaining schedules should be less affected moving forward.

Heard that the NHLPA is going to do away with testing a-symptomatic players and staff, after the break.  Probably won't hear much about Covid after that. Least not postponements and shit.

what a fucking joke


Yeah.  What he said.  Orlov was leaning to try and put a shoulder in him.  He didn't throw the knee out or even change direction.  How was this intentional?
I have no problem with DOPS suspending a player for a bad hit or trying to injure but.....
DOPS is a fucking joke as usual.  The players must be as dumbstruck as we are.  Nobody has a clue as to how to behave because the DOPS is so inconsistent.

OV needs 10 goals to pass jagr for 3rd on the all time goal list, and at about 500 fewer games
