Yes, I have a 4 year old. And yes, Wonder Pets is awesome.
Haha that pretty much sums it up.
I find this situation to be pretty worrisome myself. He's really backed himself into a corner here. I think Homer is basically hoping to limp into the playoffs and then bring everyone up since there's no cap.
But if someone like Carle, Kimmo, or Coburn gets hurt for 2 weeks, we could be potentially screwed because we couldn't really put them on IR, but we couldn't bring up another D either, I'm very much hoping that he has something up his sleeve, but if we trade Jones, then we're in a whole new world of hurt because our 3rd pairing becomes Alberts-Kukkonen.
So I dunno, this should be interesting.

I'm really starting to wonder if flu shots are really that hard to come by in america.
Flu shots serve primarily as a preventative measure for people that are extremely susceptible to contracting the flu. (The elderly, children, etc.)
Flu shots protect you against last year's flu. They don't make you immune to the flu for a year, or something. They only make it slightly less likely for you to catch the flu that was spreading 16 months ago. That's all.
There's no way that anyone could've seen this current outbreak of gastroenteritis coming. It's spread like wildfire and put entire schools, prisons, offices and communities out of commission. It would've been impossible to develop a preventative shot for public use in time for it to be effective.
I'm sure people don't get sick in whatever utopia that you call home, you ******.
Cold and flu are two very different things jackass. Cold is some snot and a headache. Flu is that plus joint aches, fevers, and any other number of things. Especially a flu that is strong enough to have been going around the locker room for A MONTH.
Winner! Ya i dont really have much to add here other then I think this situation sucks. Just felt like chipping in on the microbiology discussion lol
(c) In the event that the System Arbitrator finds that a Circumvention has been committed by a Player or Player Actor, the System Arbitrator may impose any or all of the following penalties and/or remedies set forth below. In the event that the System Arbitrator finds that a Circumvention has been committed by a Club or a Club Actor, the Commissioner may impose any or all of the following penalties and/or remedies set forth below:
(i) Impose a fine of up to $5 million in the case of a Circumvention by
a Club or Club Actor, but in no circumstances shall such fine be
less than $1 million against any Club or Club Actor if such party is
found to have violated Article 50 of this Agreement. If such a fine
is assessed against a Club (except in the case of a financial
reporting violation), that Club's Payroll Room shall also be
reduced by such amount for the following League Year, and if
such reduction of the Club's Payroll Room renders the Club out of
compliance with the Payroll Range (i.e., the Club does not have
sufficient Payroll Room to accommodate its Player commitments
comprising Club Salary) for such following League Year, then the
Club must take such steps as are necessary (e.g. Assignment, Buy-
Out, Waivers, etc.) and as are permitted by this Agreement to
ensure that the Club will be in compliance with Article 50 of this
Agreement upon commencement of the following League Year;
(ii) Impose a fine against a Player of up to the lesser of $1 million or
twenty-five (25%) percent of a Player's Paragraph 1 Salary in the
case of a Circumvention by a Player or Player Actor, but in no
circumstances shall such fine be below the lesser of $250,000 or
twenty-five (25%) percent of the Player's Paragraph 1 Salary.
Notwithstanding the $1 million limitation set forth above, any
additional amounts by which the Player has been unjustly enriched
due to the Circumvention shall be ordered to be disgorged; (iii) Direct a Club to forfeit draft picks (the number, placement, and

without limitation, by the provisions of Article 50;
(vi) Void any SPC, or any extension of an SPC, between any Player
and any Club when both the Player or Player Actor and the Club or
Club Actor are found to have committed such a violation with
respect to such SPC or extension; and
(vii) Suspend any Club employee, Player, or Certified Agent involved
in such a violation for a period of time determined in the sole

So basically, Bettman would be deciding our fate and considering how much time we've had and how much the NHL doesn't like us, I wouldn't expect too much mercy.
I think he's been ready for a week, but Homer hasn't been able to make a move to fit him in.
Also what kind of play will Kukks give us tonight? He's a deadman walking, been waived a few times, how hard does he play?? Someone mentioned going with 5 dmen and letting Briere play, we might be better off.
