    Merrimack is tied for second place, likely motivated for a top four finish, have played one or two more games than most of the teams close to them. Also, the ‘cats seem to start slow sometimes. :-)

    The happiest person alive on the planet right now is the 39th President of the United States, who never in his wildest dreams believed he would live long enough to see someone more incompetent at his job than he was, and in about a quarter of the time on the job to boot. Steve Cedorchuk probably has similar hopes of what a post-York BC may do to boost his own "legacy" ...

    Yup, this all really happened. You might ask, "Why don't I know this already?" Simple - ask your teachers, who didn't teach you these things. Ask the media, who suppressed this (highly relevant) history of flu to scare the crap out of anyone not old enough to remember first-hand, all just because they let their political preferences & agendas interfere with objective news.

    I believe these two very similar prior flu events are called facts. Over to you, ATW ...

    Had to familiarize myself with how the playoffs work but I'm seeing now that if the season ended today UNH would host BC for a winner advances to the next round game. Needing to beat BC of all teams makes me groan, but feels like a winnable game given how they've looked as of late. Maybe that would send UNH into the next round with some momentum.

    So we're rooting for the Terriers this weekend. After the roller coaster that was last weekend I'll be extra curious to see how UNH looks on Saturday night. After looking at the schedule this year I think it's fair to say they perform much better the 2nd night of the weekend. They lay and egg the first night, the defibrillator comes out and they seem to find life the second night.

    With only one game this weekend, will they show up for it?

    Chuck, did I just walk into the USCHO Cafe'? Uh, oh! I thought ANY talk of this pandemic, the response and fact based discussions MUST BE done in the Cafe', no where else. It appears that you are discussing old "right-wing" talking points the Cafe' Basement denizens belittled and disproved long ago. :-) :-) :-) :-)

    (come to think of it, so how come most turned out to be factual? My bad, don't believe your lying eyes, it's about feelings. Time to get back to living life, and happily paying $5 for gas, must defend democracy. I am just truly happy we dont have to put up with mean tweets any longer, those are bad and can lead to serious world conflicts.)

    GO CATS! 9th Place is there for the taking and very achievable.

    Thanks Darius!
    Yes Ref we need a BU sweep. This team has so many facets but here’s hoping we get a great 2 or 3 games. And I absolutely hope we get home ice and I’ll be there.

    The folly of faux climate policy and "electing" a doddering senile fossil is sadly coming home to roost.

    Work with that one, mon ami ... ;-)

    As more evidence of the dictatorship at the Lowell game the people in the President suite were not wearing masks. So is it everyone wears a mask except players and his guests?
    I'm glad you brought these points up, Norbert. First, let's start with the definition of "mandate":

    mandate
    [ˈmanˌdāt]
    NOUN
    1. an official order or commission to do something.
    These rules were never laws nor ordinances, which require going through a legislative process, and therefore implemented by folks who were voted into their legislative roles by the general populace. For the most part, they were executive overreaches by folks in charge of their little fiefdoms, and usually justified as being in the general interests of the people of said fiefdom. Except, of course, no one bothers to ask those people for permission - it's just enacted, and folks are expected to comply. Not too far from the dictatorship you described earlier, Norbert.

    An all-too-typical justification that was used by many organizations was the all-encompassing "liability" argument, as in, "we can't risk doing something that might expose our residents/students/whatever, or else we can be held liable". It's probably something that many on here believe to be true ... but guess what? That's totally overblown, too. In my professional life, my organization (like many in our industry) set up detailed units, teams and protocols for the anticipated flood or litigation which would flow from scenarios like this (i.e. organization doesn't take proper precautions, someone dies, someone sues said organization). Well, that flood hasn't happened. The problem is (and always was going to be) that tracing where one "gets" the virus is a lot more difficult legally than you might think. Sure, if 50 people drop dead in a month at your nursing home which took infected patients in (the so-called "Cuomo Scenario"), that's strong circumstantial proof. But if there are two people on the UNH campus who get it, then good luck coming up with a compelling proof (and guessing isn't allowed). Cases like that are routinely dismissed because they lack the key tort element of provable proximate cause.

    I'm sure there were many people of good faith who truly thought they were doing the right thing initially, but any pretense that there was any truly firm "science" behind a lot of this crap disappeared for me (and many many others) in the Spring and Summer of 2020, when we had riots all over the country for this cause and that cause, with thousands of people taking to the streets without masks. Suddenly, if the cause was "right", then masking was optional, which flew in the face of what was expected elsewhere (see the 2020 college football season) even afterwards. And more and more, there were sightings of celebrities and mayors and other politicians who during the day were preening Karens, but at night broke their own rules.

    I had strong opinions of the situation two years ago when it first broke out over here, but for about 90 days I decided to withhold further commentary until the situation had developed further, and more clarity was available. That clarity arrived in Spring/Summer 2020 (see above), and I've been living a completely normal mask-free life since then. Thank God we live in NH, where that's been possible, and not in MA, where the differences are still stark. I did allow myself to get the first series of shots in early '21, but with the way data on boosters has been warped and withheld, those will not be happening for me.

    Anyway, that's enough time spent on rants last night and today. Enjoy the weekend, folks.
