  1. The mortality rate for the seasonal influenza is around 0.1%. They’re estimating the mortality rate for COVID-19 to be about 3-5%. Pretty significant difference.
  2. I don't know what it is with the modern idea that vaccinations are just not that important. It's the SOLE reason we're not all dead from the measles or smallpox or a host of other infectious diseases. The anti-vaxxer movement is a strange one, isn't it?
  3. This is the primary reason I get the flu shot each year. It's not for me, it's for my daughter, my mom, my dad, my nieces and nephews... If it can help in any way, I'm in.
  4. You can and would infect other people even if you were feeling well. Symptoms can be absent for a few weeks. I enjoy talking hockey with you, but dude, it's not about you. Also, happy birthday Enjoy a Corona - the virus free kind.
  5. It absolutely helps to eliminate as much non-essential gatherings, travel, and contact as possible. Hockey is absolutely non-essential.
  6. People's reactions are so bizarre. My sister has a trip planned overseas for the entire family (incl. 4 young kids) and said when they get back, they'll keep the kids at home for 14 days (mandated from our Dept. of Education). I said "What about you?" "Oh, I'll go to work." "Um, doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose?" "No, it's fine. I should be able to handle it." "Mmm-hmm. And what about your patients? What about mom? Dad? They're in their 70s - prime demographic for mortality." And she has a PhD! Love my sister, but she's just as stubborn as I am sometimes lol.
  7. He did this two days ago, was diagnosed last night.
  8. It would be interesting for sure. I'm just not convinced this is going to magically get better in 3 weeks. I would guess based on what I've seen that it will get much worse in terms of infection rate, before it gets better. There are too many stupid and cocky people like that basketball player who was touching all the mics as a display of, what, primitive male behaviour? Well guess who was diagnosed with COVID-19 two days later? Dumbass. Hockey and other sports are so insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Let's see how this all shakes out!
  9. Caps and Devils cancelled their practices this morning. NHL will have announcement at 1pm EDT. I suspect it will be shutting down the season until further notice. We'll always have the 9-game winning streak.
  10. This is probably the last night of the season ... unless they shut it down today. I can't imagine the NBA shutting down and the NHL *not* following suit when they share arenas, facilities, dressing rooms.
  11. Yes, it sucks. There's a very real chance it derails the playoffs. I have a trip scheduled to Boston next week with my daughter to see Billie Eilish. So far, the # of cases in Boston are low, but that could definitely change in one week. Our Department of Education just released a press release saying ANYONE travelling internationally (I'm in Canada) must self-quarantine for 14 days upon return - children are NOT to be sent to school during that period. SO basically, I'm faced with cancelling and forfeiting about $1500 or having my daughter miss two weeks of school. Ugh.
  12. Echobats is still just the two of us, but in a completely different direction. We've been getting a lot more traction doing more pop type stuff, and honestly, we just don't have time to do full organic band based stuff. I wrote so many songs that would fit the Drama Tree mould, but it takes a lot out of me because I'm writing all of it - drums, guitars, bass, keys, and then I'm performing, recording, mixing, producing it all as well. Long-term we are focusing on the production, writing, engineering side of music, and what we release as Echobats is proof of concept. We are taking on up and coming talent and helping them express the very best of what they have to give - baby steps right now though. Long story short, Girl That I Love (current release) is a very poppy and mainstream song. Upcoming releases are a bit grittier (heh). My biggest problem is that I just love writing music of all kinds. I'm like a squirrel that way lol.
  13. Do you mean on regular TV (Bell/Rogers) or through Game Center? I have Game Center (watch on TV through Roku, or iPad when Im' away) and never have any problems. The only games that are blacked out for me are when the Sens play the Flyers - apparently, they consider me to be living in Sens market (I'm in NB). Are you saying if the Leafs play, every other game that night is blacked out???
  14. 100% agree. Hell, when the FLYERS were in the SCF against the Hawks, the last thing I wanted to do with my late May evening was watch hockey. Sun is out, BBQ, camping, beach season and I'm supposed to care about HOCKEY?? Simple solution. Start the season in September, say the 15th. Back to school, vacation is over, back to hockey. That backs things up almost an entire month, so playoffs would be done by end of April.
  15. Count me in the camp of fans that only watch their team. I bleed orange and black. That's it. Don't watch any other teams, any other games, or any other sports. Who are these Leafs people are talkin' 'bout anyway? They can't even spell the plural right!!!
  16. True, but it's still the Pens, and they just seem to be a bad matchup for the Flyers. But no other matchup would give me more satisfaction to win I love me some good Battle of Pennsylvania action. TB has enough depth to overcome Stamkos, I think. Their biggest issue might be entitlement - the *expectation* that they *should* win. I want no part of the Trotzlanders lol. They give us fits. I honestly think that would be the worst matchup for the Flyers.
  17. I believe they can win a round this year. Matchup will be important, but they definitely have the depth, talent, and coaching to do it. I don't think we'd beat the Pens, Bolts, or Isles (they seem to have our number this year). But I think we can beat the Caps, Canes, Jackets, Rangers, or Panthers.
  18. I can only speak for myself, but what I take from that statement is along the lines of, FINALLY, we realistically have a shot at the Cup. Probably not gonna happen this year - usually teams go through a deep run or two, go through the learning curve (so many young guys), and the bitter disappointment of losing. But we CAN win the Cup, which we haven't been able to say for way too long.
  19. Coots (flu) is a game time decision. He will take warmups. If he can play, Farabee will be sent back to LHV. If he can’t, G moves to center and Farabee will play wing as emergency recall. Everything else stays the same.
  20. Crazy that of the two times we had the 2nd overall pick, we basically ended up with two of the weakest picks in the last 15 years.
  21. Time to piss all over their playoff dreams. Need 3 of 4 points. 5-3 Flyers. G, Sanheim, Coots (2), and NAK.
