    Wait until 2024 when trump is president again . With all the voter restrictions being put into place he Csnt lose 

    I would think people are really tiring of his Barnum and Bailey road show. I correctly predicted his first run but i think a lot don't want to go through the same circus again. I'm not even convinced he'll run again. It wouldn't surprise me to see one of his family members take a shot at it with his endorsement. Sets him up for pardons down the road.

  2. I have to admit that when he was president i did follow the US politics a lot more,, especially during the height of Covid when there was little to do other then watch TV. It was a form of entertainment for me. Just like his old show "The Apprentice",,, it's gotten really stale. Media has kept him relevant but ENOUGH ALREADY. This has gotten as bad as the coverage of the Leafs in Ontario. :rolleyes:

    Ylonen has decided to get the vaccine after all and should get first dose today. Sounds like they told him he wouldn't be allowed to stay at camp without it... good for the Habs.

    Good for him. His logic for not getting it was likely flawed and i would assume the Habs educated him and put his mind at ease.

    So is saying that people are ignorant and unintelligent because they have a different view on a subject than you do. (not you specifically just you as in a general person)

    I didn't see any direct posts from members quoting you, that would lead me to believe someone was calling you out as being ignorant or unintelligent. They were generalizations of anti vaxers as far as i can see. Please PM me otherwise, as i would like this discussion to come to an end before it escalates.

    Wow what a bunch of dictatorship views there are above! Get the vaccine or be excluded from society, seriously Hitler types of statements. Everyone has a right to their own views and opinions but to say that the unvaccinated are ignorant, selfish or unintelligent is ridiculous antisemitism at its finest. Let's just throw the constitution out the window and pass all over it. 

    Can we please refrain from the Hitler and Nazi analogies when referring to members? I'm sure it wasn't your intention but those are offensive comparisons.

    Its  a Vaccination and there is no legitimate good excuse to not have gotten it yet, period.   You are free to choose not to get it but that choice, like any choice in life, comes with consequences and benefits.

    If Ylonen is showing himself to be a science denying antivaxxer then yes, trade him.   Its time we stopped tolerating people who want to ignore facts and try and twist it into a "difference of opinion".    It's not an opinion if its demonstrably wrong.  Period.

    If it's just a political stand then i agree. If it's fear, then go do the research. If it was a medical reason, then you would think the Club would have stipulated that.

    Sorry, I read this line "If you chose not to be vaccinated then your also agreeing to the consequences as far as i'm concerned"  to mean literally what it says. My apologies for the misunderstanding

    I guess i should have been clearer. My definition of an anti vaxer is somebody who is refusing for no other reason then political (your infringing on my rights) or somebody who believes in the conspiracy theory's floating around, such as your being injected with tracers or it makes you magnetic somehow. Then there's the ones who fear the ingredients used to manufacture the drug, yet have no problem ingesting something like a Big Mac for example, despite all the crap and chemical preservatives they use that keeps them looking the same after months/years. At some point they need to do the research and make an educated decision rather then have a knee jerk reaction. I have a couple of relatives like that who just leave me shaking my head at some of the idiotic reasoning they throw at me. I also sympathize with pregnant women, as this hasn't been approved for children under 12 yet. I think they should also be medically exempt at this time if they chose to hold off.

    I disagree my family has a history of heart conditions, 3 really close family members have passed away before the age of 65 due to massive heart attacks (my father, Grandmother and an aunt all on my father's side). Since one of the major side effects is a heart condition and we do not know the long term effects the vaccines have on the body, for me this COULD potentially mean I have less than 20 years of my life left. I am not anti vaccine not even close but to suggest that everyone not vaccinated deserves the conciquences without actually knowing why they are not vaccinated is irresponsible and discriminatory. There is a small portion of the population who simply choose not to get vaccinated and are anti vaccine and you comparing an experimental vaccine to alcohol is ridiculous. Everyone knows what the short and long term affects alcohol has on the body but we are STILL just finding out what the short term effects are for the vaccine and won't even know one long term effect for 5-10 more years. I am not saying don't get vaccinated, I am just saying try to understand why some people might not want to be vaccinated before lumping every unvaccinated person together and say they deserve the consequences.

    WOW. I am CERTAINLY not talking about people with legit medical reasons for not getting vaccinated. The alcohol reference was intended as an example of people breaking the rules in place, just like wearing seatbelts or smoking indoors in public places to point out a few. My message is strictly directed at those choosing not to get vaccinated for political reasons.

    I do like a lot of what ive seen from him.  My biggest concern is that - and this is purely based on what ive seen vs. what he's said  - it appears as if he caves to pressure from MB. 

    Now, some of that may be based on inexperience and being thrown into a bad situation last year so im 100% willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    I actually think this team will be a lot better than many people think. Yes, we've got concerns at centre and on defense but I think they will work themselves out.  And I think a lot of that starts with DD & his play/system. 



     

    I would like for MB to make an announcement that he has complete faith in DD to make all his own decisions. It will put to rest the speculation that he's nothing but MB's yes man when it comes to controversial lineup choices. Merrill over Romanov had MB written all over it in the playoffs, among other questionable lineup choices.

    It was a big miscalculation on their part although i guess they would say they are guaranteed 4 more years rather than the 2 remaining they had but once again with a minority govt so pretty much nothing will get done..   Ah life in Canada.

    I'm not against minority governments because it has checks and balances in place to supposedly protect against some egotistical leader going nuts on us. Imagine how much worse it could have been the last couple years. The only issue i have with minority situations is the threat of another election every time a leader takes a hissy fit because he doesn't get his way completely.

    Zac Ronaldo is not vaccinated . A requirement of being a blue jacket is that he be vaccinated . 

    And i suppose he has that right. If you chose not to be vaccinated then your also agreeing to the consequences as far as i'm concerned. They (anti vaxers) talk about rights, but what about the rights of the vaccinated to protect themselves and minimize the risk to their health and that of their family and friends? If you chose to put alcohol in your body you can't drive a car (although some do) and if you chose to do so, then again,,, you suffer the consequences. Is there much difference? Should have posted this in the Virus thread but because it's hockey related in this case,,,,,,,,

    $500 to $600 million dollars to hold an election that was uncalled for and settled nothing. The Liberal party should be paying that bill themselves. 

    Your not the only one confused or pissed off at that waste of time. Our leaders at work.:rolleyes:

    As good as our top 4 were in the playoffs, the regular season is a different beast and Im not convinced they will be as effective.  Also, Weber was playing some of his best hockey of the year for that stretch and Im not convinced Chiarot/Savard can be that effective. 

    Especially with the regular season rule book as opposed to the playoff rule book.

    Pretty much. Might have something to do with the old school coaches the Habs have a tendency of employing. Therrien was the worst, and Julien wasn't much better.  & they both had 2 terms! Coincidence? I'm thinking not.

    New school guy didn't seem much better with his handling of the kids. Sits out KK at the beginning and end of playoffs and Romanov couldn't buy a spot over Merrill.

  15. How players are brought along within an organization plays a huge role IMO. Who's to say Tkachuck would have have had the same success playing for the Habs as he has in Ottawa? Would he have been in our top 6 or on the 4th line with us? Would he have been benched for his defensive play? Those are all legitimate questions when it comes to this teams philosophy as compared to others.
