    OT: American Politics

    Yeah they're done and they know it. The lead that Biden has is almost unprecedented. It would be historic if he lost. But yeah, the Senate is very much in play. That's the one I care about most personally. I know Trump is toast.

    OT: Coronavirus Resources - and other things to not worry about

    Thing is the vaccine is likely to be not much over 50% effective and as we know not everyone will want to get it. It will be crucial that we continue to socially distance and wear masks even after it is given to most of the population. The vaccine is just one bullet, but it is not likely to be...

    OT: Coronavirus Resources - and other things to not worry about

    Can confirm that this is not being followed even remotely. In houses with big backyards with near perfect weather too... I'm seeing indoor parties all over. One summer. You just needed to go one summer without them for the greater good. Selfish brats.

    OT: Coronavirus Resources - and other things to not worry about

    Ultimately this kind of thing relies too much on the behavior of human beings. And as we have seen throughout history, that has consistently been a recipe for disaster. We need to be treated like children.

    OT: Coronavirus Resources - and other things to not worry about

    Yeah, I don't mind doing things in moderation. You don't want to stop your life entirely because well.. This could be pretty long-term and that would suck. But if everyone just cut back on unnecessary shit like fucking high school sports, dining indoors, bars, clubs, hosting large indoor...

    There's certainly difference in quality but 1. It's hard to count on that difference to be consistent year over year. Consistency is rare in goaltending. We were a bit spoiled with Freddy and the dam eventually even broke on him this season. 2. I want the best guy too, but if they're getting...

    I'll take a tandem with two potential top 20 nerdy goalies any day. Even if those stats are clearly flawed, it can't be a bad thing.

    Yeah I'm not all that faithful in goalie nerd shit to be completely honest. A lot of teams (Isles, Yotes, etc) consistently have goalies with elite numbers. I feel like nerds are missing quite a bit with goalies, more than any other position. The numbers are worth looking at, but for me I don't...

    The lagging CURA had some fun yesterday. Today is Cresco's turn. Funny how MSOs work.

    I wouldn't compare it to the spring peak. We're testing about 4-5 times more people per day these days. The spring numbers were likely far higher. But the trend is ugly. Exponential growth after the slow crawl down to double digits.

    They'd still have to trade Dermott, Kerfoot and AJ of course if Pietro comes in at the likely 9+. Will be real tight. The appeal of Georgiev for me would be the cap savings while not really sacrificing much in quality either. But I see the argument for both options, especially if they can still...

    My mistake. I can't read. Yeah 2 years is a whole different ball game. Okay I'm good with that too.

    And then next year you pay him the 7+ it would take to keep him?

    I'm not all that interested in one year of Kuemper unless it's on the cheap. I'd rather trade an asset for a Georgiev, even if it's on a cheap 2 year, "show-me" deal as zeke says. The cap space they'd save from that may be more important than a 3rd pair d really. I don't hate the odds of a...

    I'm not seeing how Georgiev isn't quality. They just can't afford super elite at the goalie position if they make a serious run and get Pietro. They really can't. I'd love for them to have the best player at every position too, but there's a salary cap. Getting one year of Kuemper is nice, but...

    The appeal is cost certainty in the goalie position for the foreseeable future. As you mentioned, there are a lot of goalies available, almost more than ever. Might be time to get some cost certainty instead of aiming for a stop-gap that you'll need to address again in a couple years when the...

    Dermott blocked by superior LD on the top 2 pairs. Georgiev blocked by a generational goalie. Kind of a win-win trade really.

    Meaning one of Dermott or Holl has to go. Is Dermott a better fit than Holl longterm on the right side in a #4 role? Because if not, he's the one that has to go I think for the reasons you outlined.
