I didn't vote for him either so I'm not knocking anyone's votes, but NOBODY voting for Matthews after his performance where he looked like an absolute beast all night long just feels wrong haha. I want to change my vote just so he gets a Times Voted nod. If that's against the rules I'll just blame herman for flipping his vote while he still could.

I think it's just one of those situations where there's a big gap between "Who had the best individual game" and "Who contributed most to the win".

Admittedly not paying attention to these things is probably better but what's the actual criticism here? All good teams that have success in the playoffs have players who really only produce on offense.

I just think it?s funny, basically saying that other than his contribution of 3 points he didnt contribute anything.

Sorry, I didn't mean you. I meant Burke. Even if what he says about Nylander is true he's still good and good value.

I mean, it's not like the Leafs won the cup in all those years they weren't the pick.

But remember, if you criticize the Trumps too much you're an elitist who doesn't understand why blue collar workers like them so much.

This may be confirmation bias at work but the Leafs still feel like they have way, way too many situations where I just have no idea where their defensemen are. They gave up two breakaways on a PK. How does that even happen? Why would you ever send defensemen past centre ice when a man down? Likewise the second Anderson goal. Their 2nd defenseman, whoever it was, wasn't even the 3rd guy back.

That's a big win. Not pretty but they battled back and showed real character.

Oh boo-hoo. They now face the same inconvenience as thousands of high school students across the nation.

Almost. When high school kids complain about metal detectors it's not because they want to be able to carry guns into school.

So in response to the gravest public health threat in our lifetimes, the Province can't define anything, enforce anything or even require any compliance.

Boy, I sure hope those dollar beers were worth it.

What is pissing me off the most, is the National is reporting new cases and deaths every day.  Last nights episode had little to nothing on the vaccine(s) and roll out programs.  While the statistics on numbers and deaths are necessary, those of us waiting (with underlying conditions) for a jab want to do know what the plan is for the roll-out, timetables, progress and any innovative plans for distribution (how about Shoppers Drug Mart, who have freezer capacity for the Pfizer vaccine). What about updates on when the other vaccines will be here;  Johnson and Johnson, will the Oxford vaccine be here, etc. etc.

Canadians want hope, not more misery.  Light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.

I'm confused. Are you upset with the National for reporting numbers or for the government for not having a better vaccine rollout. Because I don't think there's a bunch of available vaccine info that the National isn't reporting. It's just not out there.

See, this I don't get. Travel is allowed. Anyone can go for a vacation anywhere; there are thousands of people travelling in and out of Pearson Airport every day. Visitors, Canadians, Residents, everybody. Coming/going for vacation, holidays, anything. Unless this type of travel is barred, why is this a scandal?

I think it speaks to the fundamental problem with Ford's whole approach. He's a "small government Conservative" so he doesn't want to outright bar things or actually enforce quarantines, he's just asking people to be "responsible" and do those things voluntarily. So when important people do things that aren't outright banned but they've been "asked" not to do by the Premier it makes the strategy look especially bad.

I understand your argument, but limiting the stores to essential goods would also reduce occupancy. People are going to these stores to buy TVs because they can. Or maybe they're not, given my example of being one of the only people in the store.

Right but you're still left with defining essential and inessential which seems impossible to me. Like what if someone's thing they're doing to keep a lonely relative company is watching a TV show with them over the phone and their TV goes out? Or the lonely relative needs a new TV?

Well I would argue that this is a perfect time for curbside pickup/delivery rather than spending 30 minutes having a conversation with a salesperson about the merits of each TV before making a purchase.  Those direct exposure scenarios where two masked individuals are in direct communication for >15 minutes drastically increase the risk of COVID infection if one of those individuals are an asymptomatic, or subclinical carrier.

That's entirely fair. I agree those conversations shouldn't occur and people should be shopping online where possible. I'm just trying to think of things that might not seem essential but might be needed in a hurry like a phone charging cable or something.
