Who drafted Holmberg? Was it Dubas?
He was drafted in 2018, so yes, Dubas.

Dubas led that draft, but he was only recently appointed to the big chair that May. Draft data and internal rankings were crafted under Mark Hunter's direction, for which Dubas would have some input. But down at this end of the draft list, it's largely which scout has the most impressive sales pitch on a particular project prospect.

Any time the Leafs pick up a late round Swede, you can pretty safely assume Thommie Bergman got the goods.

Vatanen isn't in the NHL anymore?

Not at the moment.

I’m finding these numbers disturbing. The fully vaccinated make up the majority of the people in the hospitals and ICUs. I don’t know what this means but this certainly is going to give ammo to the anti vaccination crowd.

1) Unvaccinated people make up 40% of the people in hospitals and ICUs despite the fact that unvaccinated adults in Ontario are only like about 10% of the population. You're still significantly more likely to wind up in the ICU if you're unvaccinated.

2) Fully vaccinated people are still headed to the ICU now because what they're "fully vaccinated" against is version of COVID-19 from 1-2 years ago. There's enough data to suggest that two doses of the vaccine were incredibly effective against what COVID used to be, but they aren't as effective against what COVID has mutated/evolved into. The definition of what being fully vaccinated means is pretty outdated at this point. The antivax crowd is absolutely going to mock the idea of us needing more boosters and whatnot but that's just the reality we're in.

Most of the people involved in a car accident are seatbelt wearers, right? In the US 2019, "of the 22,215 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2019, 47% were not wearing seat belts."

While I don’t care for Sid’s rants in general I think you are really creating a false equivalency in comparing his complaints about Ford grandstanding to try and sway votes to continue to be an outright incompetent jackass to a man who cohosts a breakfast show.  One is a guy who does stuff for entertainment…they other one is directly responsible for us being back to rationing hospital beds.

We could also maybe talk about the fact that the person he was “digging out” was his press secretary Ivana Yelich.
This could've been a storyline in Veep.

The story was immediately boosted by Yelich's partner, Toronto Sun's Brian Lilley. You might remember him from:

Welcome aboard!

Forum boards are great for developing relationships over mutual interest (or mutual disdain :D), more so than larger pools like reddit/fb/discord where the signal is more difficult to separate from the noise, especially for Leafs-centric content. I hope you enjoy your stay and our erudite bickering.

Fourth time in this five games that the Leafs have blown at least a two goal lead. This is becoming a bad habit.

4 of 5 games getting a 2+ goal lead :)?

What the heck happened on that 3rd goal? It seemed the coverage was off, and the shot went through the wickets of Campbell.

Blue line turnover, and the sort out was not great
Kerfoot and Sandin covering the same zone, Tavares and Nylander were on their horses to gain the red line, so they’re well out of the play.

Jesus. Again awful defense and another back door play.

Klingberg?
Isn't he more of a Rielly type?
