  1. It’s a good thing when you realize half way through taking your gear off after the game that you still have your mouth guard in! Definitely says something about the comfort. I agree it often feels tight when you put it in after it’s cooled down, but it seems to get better once it’s been warmed up in your mouth for a bit.
  2. SISU, by far. Only mouth guard I can tolerate wearing.
  3. That would be grossly insufficient. Shutting everything down was the right call.
  4. VH Skates. Easily the best hockey gear I’ve ever had. My Passau glove is probably a close second.
  5. Well that’s optimistic. I wouldn’t count on it happening.
  6. On a bit of a selfish note, could you take a peek at this thread and tell me what you think?
  7. Yeah it’s really annoying. For both of us if I’m being honest. Obviously more for her though lol. But it’s just frustrating when we wanna go do stuff and she just can’t. We had to cancel a backpacking trip. Though it definitely seems to come and go. A bit more concerned about her recovery from COVID-19 right now, though.
  8. I think I went there once when I was commuting to Valencia from San Diego. Is that the one with the second mini-rink?
  9. Well, my wife had an e-visit with the doctor today. Has the symptoms for COVID19, has a history of chronic bronchitis, is a first responder, but was denied a test. At this point were making the assumption that she has it and are proceeding with treatment under that assumption. With her history we expect it’s just a matter of time before she is in the hospital. Hopefully not, but again since they won’t test her we have to assume.
  10. With how hard it is to lace the top eyelets in VH/True skates I always buy laces way too long so I don’t have to. I just double lace (the initial crisscross before you make your loops) and then double knot them (because unlike skaters, retying my skates is not an option) and then tuck them up under my socks. Works for me.
  11. I use those too. I agree though that the quality of Elite laces isn't great, but these are still my favorite.
  12. Good to hear, man. Uh. So the e-visit screening for COVID-19 from Kaiser wont let you get to the point of scheduling a test if you answer “no” to the questions about traveling overseas or close contact with confirmed patient. I… think we’re kind of past those at this point. Fix it, KP.
  13. And here. We. Go. Total lockdown for all of California.
  14. Wow congrats on being ambidextrous!
  15. Oh yeah, they’re generally what I’m listening to while driving. Sometimes while I’m working depending on how much concentration I need.
  16. I’ve been listening to Ray and Dregs podcast lately. It’s a bit.. dry? But good overall. I think it just needs a third voice.
  17. I used to use gorilla laces back in the day. I'm not sure the metal tips really do much. I'm also really not sure Elite makes the best laces, either. lol.
  18. We once played a game in the afternoon and I guess it was some sort of school event on the ice right after us, so there were FIVE bus loads of kids in the stands. That was crazy.
  19. I’m in Missouri right now and the number of people who still say it’s a media driven hoax still is staggering. It will be VERY real for them, soon enough. Hell, my wife and I may very well have brought it here with us, who knows.
  20. I'm currently in Missouri in my wife's home town. I've heard THREE people today saw it was media-driven nonsense. Her mom said "the obama swine flu ended up being nothing" so why would she believe this? The people here are absolutely oblivious to what's going on in the world around them. It's crazy. I wish I could force them all to read this: https://www.boredpanda.com/coronavirus-outbreak-stages-italy-jason-yanowitz/
  21. I was reading an article about the idea of additional teams in some sort of play-in so they can jump straight to playoffs when the season resumes. https://www.tsn.ca/mapping-out-a-potential-24-team-nhl-postseason-1.1457692 I have a different idea that would be super easy to implement that would actually be even shorter. A 70 game regular season. Hear me out. Changing to a 70 game regular season would eliminate all but the bubble teams. Start with the easier East. If you make it a 70 game season, you have these for standings: All of the Atlantic bubble teams are out, so you have three teams for two spots since the divisions are already decided. You just have Carolina and NYI play twice (home and home?). And you have Washington play Philly for the division (PIT cant catch them so no reason for them to play 70). Done. Easy peasy. Now let's look at the more complicated West: Some teams have played 71 games. So, for the purpose of STANDINGS ONLY, eliminate the last result from those teams. StL, Vegas, Winnipeg were wins so subtract 2 points. Edmonton was a loss, so they stay the same. So you end up with: From there, you can just have the four remaining teams with 69 GP play their closest geographical team (NSH @ DAL, MIN @ VAN - home team based on 69 GP standings). So that means you could easily wrap up a play-in in two days if all these games happen the same night (and the second CAR/NYI game happens the next night). And you're not doing any weird 24-team playoff crap. I think the only ones who would really complain about it would be those teams who were automatically eliminated immediately, but its not like they didn't have the same opportunity as everyone else. Thoughts?
  22. My former team is forfeiting tonight’s game and not showing up.
  23. Ours is still open. We just got an email that the rooms will be sanitized between games and to keep gloves on in the handshake lines. Yet our softball leagues, a sport which requires just about zero physical contact with other people, have been canceled. It honestly makes little sense for them to continue.
