I'm not disagreeing that Nylander could have used more TOI.  But the idea he's selling that M&M were "gassed" is really dubious.  They got neutralized by the Habs (well, that and Marner decided to channel Mikheyev).

I'm having troubles taking it seriously because of this quote:

Might as well have said we only use 10% of our brain power.

I'm not convinced Foligno wants to sign here.

Another vaccine is potentially ready to enter the market in Q3. This is good news: about 90% efficiency and is easy to store and transport.

Only 1% of people in developing nations have the 1st dose of any COVID vaccine.

Pretty sure it's shaped like Fleur-de-lis.

Thanks, Captain Obvious.

That was aggressive.

Yes. Out of character for frogs.

I apologize and will do penance.

Not today Frank, NOT TODAY!

Jeez, Frank. Take it easy on him. Way to kick a guy while he's down.

Gravity?

This is the basketball description, where it's much easier to see (and they have player tracking for it).
https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/11744634/explaining-gravity-basketball

Every skater on the ice has a gravity, as does the puck but not everybody has the same 'mass' so to speak, and it's situational too.
...

Thanks. Makes sense.

Ya. Similar experience. I booked way before my wife but she ends up getting hers before me. The pharmacy just called her and asked if she wanted to come down that day.

I also find the messaging confusing. I went on the gov't's site to book my 2nd shot because "accelerated 2nd doses are available for everyone!" I go through the application and it tells me I'm not eligible for my 2nd shot yet. Ya, that's why i'm booking it FOR THE FUTURE.

I'm going to see if I can book for my son who is 11.75 years old. Apparently if I phone I should be able to book his first shot.

This whole video is pretty crazy.
Yikes.

Playing career
Robitaille played in 382 regular season NHL games, scoring 23 goals and adding 105 assists. He was most well known for his punishing hip checks. He also appeared in 13 playoff games, six with Buffalo and seven for Vancouver, tallying one assist. His career ended pre-maturely in 1977 when he was blind-sided by Dennis Owchar of the Pittsburgh Penguins, which caused nerve damage in his neck.[1] He would later win a lawsuit against the Canucks for mistreating his injuries.

His recall of the incident is even crazier:

He will be in every line-up I post for next season until I'm told otherwise.

I'll use him in EA NHL 20 and let you know if he's any good.

Clearly, they're talking about JvR or Andreas Johnsson.

Rackell has only one year left on his deal and I think would make for a nice Hyman replacement.

Got my 1st shot today (Pfizer). woohoo!

My shoulder feels like it was shot with a handgun. Normally I only get a tiny bit of soreness from a vaccine, but this is pretty intense. Should be good in a day or two!
You'll be good. Enjoy the sleep because I was pretty tired soon after!

Feeling good today! The more I move my arm, the better it feels. No tiredness (well, not vaccine-related, I did stay up until 2:00 watching TV and destroying young teenagers in NHL 20).

bad news is: because I'm feeling just fine, I couldn't get out of doing work, so the wife is making me change the rear shocks on her van in the driveway in the heat and stupid humidity. I am now covered in dirt and WD40
