Not too sure who it helps more. I think we had them doubting themselves. Very much anticipating the explanation of the Canucks being the
driving force on a suspension of play. Very surprised!

Well Myers is close so they likely have him in the lineup when they resume so.... :look:

We support the less fortunates, the shut ins and the blind?

Not sure about that. If anything they were probably dying to get back at it right away for redemption the same way the Nucks did to erase the G1 blowout. Hard to say, but with the back-to-back coming up I think the rest is good, mostly for Marky.

Rumour at this point. They mentioned it earlier on 1040, apparently both Nucks & VGK.

Postponing games for a few days would be like Colin Kaepernick taking a knee for just a few games. Once it's over no-one cares.

Pro sports players are trying to do their part, but in the end it's just going to be symbolic. They are not going to give up their paycheque and before long it will be back to business as usual.

That's why Kaepernick is such a hero. He put his money where his mouth is.

Yes, political posturing so we can sit Benn or Fantenburg.... I don't think the players were thinking this way, but....

Two extra days of R&R and video games. That's sure to advance human rights. Well, it won't. But our virtues have been signalled! I guess its better than burning a city.

Yeah, ummm, no. Kaepernick was on the short road to getting cut. Because once he was figured out, he became not special. And then quickly not good. Remember, NFL contracts are not guaranteed.

But the kneeling thing got him a multi-million dollar contract with Nike.

His mouth made him money.

Kane and Dumba, two players not in the playoffs, leading the charge to cancel games. And yes the NHL will come back with more back to back games to make up the schedule. Does anyone really think Trump or his enablers will listen?

That's pretty cynical there UW, to think that he took a knee figuring he would get a payday out of it.

I didn't say he kneeled figuring to get a payday. I said kneeling led to a payday that he wouldn't have otherwise received. I don't think he imagined that it would receive so much attention.

Jeff Paterson@patersonjeff
so sounds like Game 3 Canucks vs Vegas will go Saturday now. Then Games 4 & 5 back to back on Monday-Tuesday. Question is would Games 6 & 7 be back to back if necessary to hustle the schedule along?
