Quote from: CarltonTheBear on January 10, 2023, 04:27:51 PMI'm at a point where if Nick Robertson got us a really good top-6 winger or a solid 2nd line centre I'd likely be willing to part with him to get it done (off the top of my head players like Tarasenko, Bertuzzi, Toews, Kuzmenko maybe).

Would I add our 1st rounder in order to get into the upper tier of rentals like Kane/Horvat/ROR? I guess that depends on where we're when it comes to trade time. If our goaltenders continue to be all over the place or worse then I'm not sure I take the chance. If they're reliable or better then I could be tempted to go for it.

so Robertson for Toews? Maybe. Robertson+1st+Kerfoot/3rd for Kane? Tempting. Adding Sandin to the mix to get both is where it gets dicey. I'm not even completely opposed to moving him, but it'd have to be for a really good player that we get 2 playoff runs out of.

Does Robertson have that much value these days to get a piece like that?  Not sure an oft-injured, depreciated, albeit young, asset, will hold that much value.

Robertson for Toews seems like a reasonable deal, however.  Toews is nothing like what he was.  And personally, I absolutely loathe him, so I don't want to see him as a Leaf.  But it does seem like a deal that'd make sense for both sides.

Well, when Rielly was accused of using a homophobic slur during a game -- when he clearly didn't -- it set off a huge firestorm.  He had to sit through an interview the next day about it saying he will help the cause.  You Can Play jumped in saying they were going to use it as a teaching mechanism for the players.

So yeah, sometimes something gets unexpected publicity in a negative way that is turned into awareness and educational purposes.

Yes, I agree. As I said on the onset, if I'm Provorov, I put the jersey on and avoid all this hoopla.

To OTH's point though, maybe this was a blessing in disguise because this brought more awareness to the LGBTQ community than if all players partook. Because I'm sure many others like myself would have had no clue the initiative took place that night had it not been for Provorov's stance/ignorance/non-conformity (whatever people want to call it).

Well, I'd go as far to say I don't think these appreciation/recognition nights should exist in the first place.  That's just me.

It would have saved a whole lotta discussion for no reason if he simply wore it.  On the other hand, I definitely won't vilify him for not doing so and sticking to his beliefs.

Meh.  I'm not much of a Dubas fan, but it's a move that I even think should and has to be done.

Quote from: Bullfrog on November 16, 2022, 07:11:41 PMNo way of knowing, really. Some people are suggesting to not get them at the same time so that you can pinpoint which is the culprit in case you have a reaction. I felt rough after my last covid booster (Dec 2021) but have never had a reaction to a flu shot, which I get every year. So it could be the COVID shot?

I know a few people who've gotten both the same day, and had the usual aches and pains for the day.

Just going by what my doctor told me, he said the Moderna bivalent vaccine would make me like complete crap for a day or two.  Have yet to take either so far, but will be looking to do so soon now that having had COVID is beyond the 90-day immunity period.

My father-in-law took his flu shot last week and felt like garbage for three days.  Have never gotten a flu shot myself, but may do so for the first time this year based on my doctor's recommendations.

Guess you won't know, but so long as you are feeling better now, small nuisance in the grand scheme of things to protect yourself.

Quote from: Bullfrog on November 16, 2022, 07:11:41 PMI got the Moderna bivalent one and the flu in the same day (last month) and was wrecked for about 18 hours, but then ok.

Is it because you got both, or because the Moderna bivalent vaccine is considered to provide harsher and longer post-shot reactions?

I love watching this entire Twitter fiasco as an outsder/non-user.

Musk just doing whatever the heck he wants with his new $44 billion toy.  Hardcore users on the complete opposite side of Musk's ideologies getting all worked up as a result threatening to leave the platform.

As someone who has never liked the premise behind Twitter, I'm loving watching it all burn down.

I do wonder what a hard ass like Torts could do with the talent on this team for, let's say, a 3-year period before his act wears thin.
Christ...it's rough seeing Borje like that.

So I've got my Fantasy Hockey draft in a couple hours. Any sleepers people like? I'm thinking someone on Columbus might get a  big boost from Gaudreau. Roslovic? Laine to take a step forward?

Toffoli might be an intriguing option if shotgunning with Huberdeau and Lindholm for a good chunk of the year.

We're not talking about abandoning downtown, we're very much talking the opposite. Replacing the infrastructure that service business like big office blocks and parking lots with places for people to live and eat and go out and have fun without having to driving an hour. Reducing traffic and increasing walkable streets/bike paths/green spaces. Like Arn said, an emphasis on mixed use neighbourhoods while retaining the sort of transit and infrastructure for tourism you need.

While that definitely sounds ideal, especially with the amount of vacancies these big office buildings will be facing moving forward, is something like this even feasible or possible?  Or is this merely a "in a perfect world" type suggestion?

If anything, the biggest mistake has been never connecting the surrounding cities with a practical transit system into the city.

I got really tired of the WFH initiative after a while because I craved the social interaction, especially when we were stuck in lockdown or with all the restrictions.

Now that everything is opened up again and back to normal, WFH is great.  Don't have to worry about waking up early.  Avoid traffic and the higher gas prices.  Am here to take and pick the kids up from school.  And since there is so much going on with both the kids and me every evening with activities, I get my fill of the social interaction outside of these four walls I want.

Thank goodness my boss didn't care for a hybrid model and chose for our group to remain WFH full time.  Heck, he's encouraging me to go to Greece and work from there if I wanted to.
