We're All Doomed!™ (the Conquest, War, Famine, and Death Thread)

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

^MMMMMMMMM.... handshakes.

https://www.nhl.com/sharks/news/update- ... 18989073=1
SAN JOSE, CA - Sharks Sports & Entertainment is today announcing an update to events scheduled at SAP Center at San Jose through April 1, 2020.

All three San Jose Sharks games (March 19 vs. Montreal, March 21 vs. Boston and March 29 vs. Arizona) will be played as scheduled at SAP Center but will be closed to the general public.
No doubt their final 2 home games in April will get the same treatment... if the NHL doesn't end up just cancelling the season.

(which wouldn't surprise me at this point)

Thankfully there's a lot less high fiving in the NHL and what little there is is done mostly with gloves on.

Hockey should be okay.

This is a great place to go for a constantly-updated bird's-eye view of the pandemic.

Keep in mind they only have the ability to test about 3000 in NA per day...

The NHL is going to wait until coronavirus is a repeat offender before suspending games.

The NHL has fined coronavirus $3,521, the maximum amount allowable under the CBA

Personally I'd be shocked if they didn't follow the NBA's lead and postpone games

No team in the NHL playing tonight is in action tomorrow. Every road team is already in the city where their playing. My guess is the NHL will suspend play after tomorrow’s slate.

Well I decided I'm going on my trip! Someone has to stand up to this virus. And the Canucks are not winning the Cup this year anyway :mrgreen:

Hey Per, I will be in Sweden!
Good for you. You can’t let fear dictate your life
Hey, be honest, we are ALL scared to death of Per! :scowl:

But seriously folks, if it were me I would postpone until such time as a vaccine is available.

And that wouldn't be a decision based on fear, but rather logic...
I have to add, HW are you out of your mind?
