Jayce Hawryluk currently has the Brazilian Variant of covid during the current Canucks outbreak despite getting infected with the original virus last summer. Teams shouldn't be assuming that there is any immunity at this point.

I know nothing about those prospects but getting a first seems good for the Devils.

Also maybe the Pens can actually beat the Devils this week with those two players gone. Who am I kidding I know how this ends

Players have to have three straight negatives tests on three successive days after symptoms abate to leave isolation. They're then subject 14 days of medical monitoring and PCR testing, but can return to the club for skates/training/games etc.

Of course this is all pointless when you're still symptomatic, so that timeline is still a long ways off.

WHERE DA LEAD AT


The two prospects are fringe AHL tweener types, they're not much. The late first rounder is by far the most valuable piece coming from the isles

I had no idea Zajac was available too but because of that I'm OK with the price being a first, especially considering it sounded like Boston was pretty hot for Palmieri too

Isles lines probably shake out to be something like

Palmieri/Barzal/Eberle
Beauvilier/Nelson/Bailey
Zajac/Pageau/Wahlstrom
Martin/Cizikas/Clutterbuck

Those are four really solid lines with how well Beauvilier and Wahlstrom are developing this year, I'm starting to get nervous that I'm feeling a faint sense of hope here

Incorrect. B117 (UK/Bristol variant) and the P1 Brazilian have significant immune escape even in previously infected individuals. Go look up what happened in Mansus, Brazil for what P1 and 'natural herd immunity' looks like.


Hainsey gets a pass because it led to that awesome goal and a cup. Scuds I thought was a UFA signing not a rental the 2nd time around.

Isles going for it. With that center depth and scoring add they are going to be really difficult.

You’re right, I was trying to tone down how I described it because I’m never sure how anyone outside the doomer thread will take the info especially since it doesn’t get a lot of news coverage. If I said unqualified that it didn’t matter whether or not he’d been infected, I expected some well actuallys.

They pretty obviously aren't going to return, the NHL is just desperately hoping that they don't have to cancel the rest of the Canucks' season so they don't have to cut a cheque to advertisers for the cancelled games.

quote:

Breaking its communications silence, the team issued a medical statement Wednesday summarizing the positive tests so far, confirming there is a coronavirus variant involved and attributing the outbreak to a “source infection to a single individual obtained in a community setting.”

[...]

The community setting is believed to have been a Vancouver restaurant. Several have been closed recently due to COVID exposures. The province shut down interior dining at restaurants the same day as Gaudette’s positive test.

The Canucks’ statement adds heft to the internal memo the NHL sent its teams on Saturday warning against non-compliance with the league’s COVID-19 protocols, which include a prohibition on players dining out.

“We have begun to encounter incidences of non-compliance with the COVID-19 Protocol, which have resulted in exposure to, and infection from, the COVID virus,” the memo stated.

Natural immunity from COVID classic seems to suck for P1 but luckily the vaccines (at least the 2 dose ones) seem to make your body pump out enough antibodies to still defeat them.

Cocaine Bear posted:

Oh, I know America is a poo poo show but the biggest kid on the block gets to take what they want, unfortunately. Just if before the seasons started you called an entire team getting mega covid and another probably about to go down to a similar fate, I'd have guessed the central. Texas, Floridas, and a Carolina? Woof.

Did you forget Dallas?
