Well said.

Fortunately for us, Meds is always wrong. :mrgreen:
And also that Meds hasn't predicted anything either way.....all he said is that we shouldn't get all fixated on a guy who hasn't played a game in the NHL as if he's going to be a lock for 25 goals and 50-60 points.
In a lot of cases you are correct meds....

Just not this time...... I feel it :mex:
If it was anyone else I'd argue it rats.....but strong are you with force. I'll trust your feelings.

I’m hearing that there is a serious Covid-19 outbreak through SKA’s organization. (Vasili Podkolzin’s team)

The coaching staff and up to 10 players have contracted the virus.

The coaches will not be on the bench today.

The owner will apparently be coaching the team today.

Sounds like the American survival of the fittest strategy is getting adopted in Russia.
So, if you and your friends and relatives can't survive Covid, well, we didn't really want you anyways.

Rafferty & Rathbone
I hear promising comments/observations made about both of these defenseman. I guess its fairly normal to want see a future with rose-coloured glasses and all. But realistically, what do posters suppose is the likelihood that one or both could end up in the line-up this year or next?

Here are a couple clips of the crowd at today's KHL game.

This is an almost full arena while half of the team has contracted the Covid-19 virus.
What the hell is the KHL doing.

It sounds like Rafferty is offensive at both ends of the ice. That’s only half good. Might be too risky to make it.
It seems like Rathbone is more likely to make it. Solid at both ends.

What’s the percentage of humans that have to get COVID for humans to develop herd immunity? Anyone know?

I keep reading it's around 60%. Fauci recently said 70% in a debate with Rand Paul.

Rafferty did pick it up in his own end in the latter part of Utica's season. You might have noticed his offensive numbers tailing off, his improved defensive play coincided with the decrease in offensive output. It seems like someone got through to him somehow that what he was doing wouldn't work at the NHL level.

Nobody knows. Somewhere between 40 and 90%. Differs between different diseases, based on how easily they spread.
We will find out eventually, but at this point it is still just guess work.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
Except when donating blood.
