  2. I'm hoping Gretzky but so far I'm seeing Lemieux.

    The important difference to note between COVID-19 and the regular flu is not the mortality rate or severity of the illness, rather it's the incubation period. The regular flu has an incubation period (you're a carrier spreading the contagion, but showing no symptoms) of 1-4 days (2 days on average). COVID-19 has an incubation period of 2-14 days (per the CDC)... some reports indicate even longer incubation periods. The numbers are changing as we learn more about the virus, but average is believed to be in the 5-6 day range. Assuming you quarantine yourself when you begin experiencing symptoms, a single individual infected with COVID-19 can spread the virus to 2 to 3 times as many people vs the standard flu.... which has a multiplicative effect. If I had to make a prediction, assuming we take appropriate preventative measures, this should settle down sometime around Memorial Day.
  4. What should they do with Hutton? He has 1 year remaining at 2.75m. I can't see how you bring him back? Maybe go the Bogo route... waive, re-assign, suspended, terminate? Or maybe St. Louis would take him back? Hutton for Jake Allen maybe? That would give St. Louis a bit of cap relief as Allen makes +4m/yr, as a backup is kinda steep, they might bite at Hutton straight up for Allen.... although is Allen even much of an upgrade over Hutton?
  5. The time to take action, for example by increasing social distances, is now. Delaying by even a single day can have catastrophic consequences. That said, I'll be shocked if the major sport leagues, including golf, tennis, etc... don't end up putting their seasons on hold for the next 4-6 weeks. People talk about the economic impact of cancelling or postponing events.... while the financial losses could be significant, it would pale in comparison to the economic impact a COVID-19 epidemic would have on this country.
  6. PIT wasn't actively looking to trade Kahun. PIT wanted Sheary. JBOT asked for Kahun in return. PIT initially balked, so JBOT included EROD, selling him as a sweetner.
  7. I've seen a few Minnesota games in person this season, and IMO Ryan Johnson is, at best, another Henri Jokiharju.
  8. If you have a problem with me stating facts, then I'm not sure what to tell you. Deal with it.
  9. He's improving, but he hasn't arrived yet. You can't assume he's the #1 guy going into next season, even if he finishes strong. It's imperative that you bring a guy to legit compete with him for the #1 job heading into next season.... and I'm not talking about guy who's been a career backup.
  10. He's also a +3 TRpm, compared to Reinhart's -13. Has 100 more hits. Also more blocked shots and fighting majors 🙂 Those are facts, not opinions. Laser beams top shelf.
  11. Nic Deslauriearerieier with the natural hat trick in the 1st period. He has more more goals in one period than Sam Reinhart the last 45 periods.
  12. It's not a snapshot, it's his last 8 games, important games to the franchise and his financial future. He has every reason to leave it all out on the ice, but sadly, not only has he vanished from the score sheet, I'd argue he's become a liability.
  13. Risto drastically improved his +/- this year... More importantly he has a positive TRpm for the first time in his career. Reinhart, sadly, has the second worst TRpm on the team.
  14. last 8 games 0g, 0a, -9 I thought he had a really good game @PIT back 2 weeks ago, then he disappeared. He's now on pace for <60 points this season.
